Faster than a speeding bullet...well, not quite...
Client #700 has had her baby! The birth was powerful, beautiful, joyful, challenging, and quite unbelievable for mum. Her first labour was more than two days...this one was only 5 1/2 hours.
And that wry sense of humour that I wrote about in the post from earlier today? This little girl decided to come sunny side up! Easily, too!
