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!
