Finley's story starts a little earlier than most births. She wasn't growing well so the decision was made to induce mama at 35 weeks and 3 days. She was measuring very small and it was decided that she needed to be delivered to ensure a healthy baby and mama. Mama went in the evening before and things really got started at 7:00 am on April 6, 2017. The pitocin was started and mama was 1cm and 60% effaced. Finley was born at 9:54 am. It was fast and furious! In fact, it was so fast that the nurse wasn't even in the room as she crowned. Grandma was holding her head as a nurse ran in and finished the delivery. She didn't even have time to put gloves on! She started crying immediately and it was the best sound. She is a strong little girl. She weighed 3 lbs 6 oz and was 16 inches in length. She is tiny but is most definitely a fighter. It was such a privilege to be asked to document this day.
