Ida Mae’s First Appearance

A couple weeks ago, I posted some maternity photos of my dear friend, Emily. On Saturday, she had her baby, little Ida Mae, weighing in at 6lbs 14oz and 19 inches long. I had the honor of being with her and her husband throughout her labor and delivery and will never forget when this special little girl came into this world.

I was so proud of my friend as she made it through labor without drugs, and had her baby naturally just as she wanted. It was so emotional to watch her go through labor, having done it just 3 years ago myself…and planning to do it again in February. It is an experience that you never forget, although the details may be fuzzy. Watching Emily have a baby brought it all back to me and I was overwhelmed with tears so often. The experience only women can have…the bond of friendship…the miracle of bringing a life into the world…the amazing strength it takes…the incredible pain and inconceivable joy…a new little baby…

Emily’s parents were there to meet their first grandchild and there was such celebration and happiness filling the room.
