I love my job!

I had a doula client/friend go into labor yesterday. She called me at 4:30 in the morning saying she was having pretty consistent contractions. I went to her house and we went to the hospital at about 6:15 am. We were only at the hospital waiting for her husband to arrive for about 10 minutes. He works near DC and had to travel about 3 hours to get home. She did awsome! They didn't know what they were having before they had her! I couldn't wait that long to find out! She had a beautiful baby girl at 1:52 pm, weighing 7 lbs 10 oz, 20 inches long. They don't have a name for her yet, but I will keep you posted. Here is a pic of the baby. I hope they don't mind. I so love my job helping bring babies into this world and into wonderful families!

Me and Baby Pea
They are calling her Baby "Pea" because they don't have a name for her yet, and their last name starts with a "P", so it just stuck. How cute is that!

What a sweet baby. I got to hold a 5 day old baby on Sunday and then take dinner over last night. Abi sure loves the babies and did pretty good at holding her all by herself.
