Wordless Wednesday: Labor

About 2 hours after my water broke
My water broke at 8:11 pm on Tuesday, January 22nd. Canon was ultimately born by Cesarean at 6:28 a.m. on Friday, January 25th after hospital transfer. I hope to write his complete birth story this weekend, but in the mean time, here are some photos taken by one of my midwives during labor!

Many, many contractions looked like this.

My husband was an incredible support through
a very long labor and eventual hospital transfer

  1. You did so amazing, laboring for so long. Canon is beautiful!

  2. Congratulations, Joella. I'm sorry you ended up with a hospital transfer, but when it comes down to it, it's most important that little Canon is here safe and sound. Big hugs, mama! I will never regret birthing in water. <3

  3. Beautiful pictures mama! Glad that little C. is here and healthy!
