The Birth of Baby Milly


May 26th will definitely go down as a favorite day of mine in 2015.  It was the day that my friend, Nancy, gave birth to her sweet baby girl.  I was so blessed and honored to have been there to document these moments of her labor and delivery.  Let me tell you…this woman was beyond amazing as she achieved the medication-free birth that she was hoping to have.  And her husband, Will, was a rock for her.  There is literally nothing he could have done differently to be a better coach for Nancy than he was.

If you are a birth story junkie like I am, you would be remiss to not read Nancy’s birth story on her blog.  Part One can be found HERE and Part Two can be found HERE.

Lastly, you simply must watch the short video at the end of this post.  Will and Nancy didn’t know if they were to have a boy or a girl until the birth day. The moment that Will tearfully announces “it’s a girl”…well, I’m just a puddle of tears every time I watch it.
