Parker Hendricks - Birth

Birth is so unpredictable. And sometimes very fast. This was the case for Parker's birth. I walked into the house about 15 minutes after he had been born. We were all in shock at exactly how fast it went! This little boy was born on a beautiful February day. It was around 60 degrees outside and sunny. He had 3 older brothers waiting to meet him. It was such a special day. I enjoyed so much working with this family. They were so welcoming and honestly, just a joy. 

Lola Mae - Birth

August 1, 2016 was a day that I won't ever forget. I attended my first home birth. It was the most incredible experience. Kalynn sent me a text at 12:30 am, I was up and out the door in 15 minutes. I made it to Siloam by 2:45. Sweet miss Lola made her appearance at 5:37 am. Watching Kalynn labor was inspiring. I know that sounds crazy but she handled it so well. It was fun to get to watch a midwife in action as well. She was a great support. I feel like I learned so much about birth just by being there. Kalynn and Shawn had chosen to not find out what they were having before so it was so fun to watch Shawn deliver Lola and then announce that she was "another girl!" This is their 3rd girl and it was evident that he was head over heels for the newest Hansen lady. I can't thank them enough for letting me be the one to document this day!
