I set a record with this birth! Definitely not a record I wanted to have though: “Longest Amount of Time to Miss a Birth By.” This was moms 3rd baby, 2nd vbac, 1st homebirth and she decided to go out with a bang! I got the text to come at 4:55 AM, was out the door by 5, but baby girl was born only 7 minutes later before any of the birth team had arrived! Daddy was the baby catcher and the place of birth was in front of the bathroom counter. Annie knew she needed to come on out before her 2 crazy older brothers woke up!
