It is so empowering to get to watch a woman reach down, let her baby's head fill her hands, and then pull her baby out of her body and up to her chest. It is one of the most amazing moments in life!
This mama worked for it. Labor was longer than she'd thought it would be. She kept having these long breaks at the end, too. At one point she said, "I feel like this is taking forever." But she had the most amazing support system. She had her husband by her side giving both physical and emotional support. The way he would look at his wife while she was working to bring their baby earthside almost brought me to tears a couple of times. She had several of her friends at her house. They were making food, running errands, and helping with the older siblings. She also had her online supporters who were watching the live stream and cheering her on along the way. She had her midwife and birth team making sure she and baby were doing fine. She was held up on all sides and so was able to focus on doing the work of labor.
She looked gorgeous while doing it and now has a gorgeous little girl to share this life with. Congratulations, Teller family!! What a beautiful day this was. I'm so thankful that I got to be a part of it. <3
