Fast Detroit Home Birth with Midwives
Fast Detroit Home Birth
The Polar vortex was in full force for the fast Detroit home birth when Anne Marie texted me to say that her water broke. Interestingly, earlier in that day I received a text from Anne Marie, to tell me a few birth details. I asked her how she was feeling and she said she was fine and thought baby would stay put for a few more weeks. It was just a few short hours later that her water broke.
Anne Marie’s contractions didn’t start right away and we all waited for her call to tell us that things had started. She texted me at 5am that things were picking up and I left immediately. It was frigid as I got in the car, I scraped ice crystals off the windshield and drove an hour to the birth. I walked in just a few short minutes before baby was born. Anne Marie was amazing as she worked through intense contractions while her baby was making her entrance into the world. Her midwives gracefully helped her into a place to deliver and the birth tub that was being filled up, was stopped. This baby was coming NOW!
Sweet baby was born just as the sun was rising. She was surrounded by love and support from her family, her children and her sister and brother in law. What an incredible story to tell her about her fast Detroit home birth with midwives on the coldest day of the year.
