I arrived at this families home as mom was heavy into active labor. She was preparing to get into the tub with the help of her doula and husband. Her birth was what we call a “unicorn birth”… late day with beautiful light streaming through the window above her. She really wanted to give birth before her daughter came home from daycare, and guess what? She had her sweet baby girl right before daycare pickup! Her mom was visiting from Korea, and went to go pick up big sister. A funny little moment in this birth was when grandma could not figure out how to get back to the house, and mom had to speak in Korean to the daycare to try and give her directions, just a few minutes after birth, before the placenta was even born!
Soon after big sister arrived home, the entire family climbed into their bed and admired their sweet little baby girl.
