Baby Wilson

 

Anne looks way too happy, beautiful, and chill to be a couple of hours from having a baby, but she was in great spirits.

Dr. Rampton, Will, and Anne. I sure do love that Dr. Rampton. He delivered Sofia, and he is such a great man.

My chance to hold a precious new baby before I had to escape to pick up my own kids. Thank you so much for watching my kids for me Audra!

A couple of months ago I ran into my friend Anne at the library. She asked me if I knew of any good doulas in town. I smiled and said that she was looking at one, and the best part…. I would be free. As to not confuse you all, I actually am not a trained doula, but I figure if I have had 3 natural births on my own, I could probably support another woman trying to do the same. It has been on my bucket list to attend a birth and be a part of the miracle without being the one who is actually doing the miraculous part. The very exciting thing is that Anne actually took me up on my offer. It was such an honor to be at her birth. I thought that I was pretty calm during most of labor, but Anne was literally cracking jokes while 8 cm dilated . She is pretty much as tough as they come. There was such a feeling of love and support in the room, and I am so happy that baby and mama are both doing great.

Thank you so much for taking me up on my offer Anne. You are a rock star, and feel blessed to have witnessed the beauty of your birth.

How wonderful that you were able to help out your friend in such a momentous event — I bet you were a rock star too, and congrats on marking an item off your Bucket List ;)
BTW, I see little Sofia made it on the GT front page today!

Thanks Chrissy,
If you ever go for #3, let me know if you need a pretend doula :).

I bet you were a awesome doula! I love this picture of Anne (and Patricks shirt is very appropriate!)

The shirt the proud new daddy is wearing is just too perfect for the occasion ;)
