Baby girl born 2 weeks late to first time mom, 6/30/22

July 9, 2022 | Tanya Walker | Recent Births

This little girl made her mom and dad wait and wait and wait. Her mama tried all she could to get her to come but babies really don’t come unless they are ready. She waited 14 days past her guess date before she decided to meet us. Her water was broken 53 hours before this first time mom birthed her baby at home in water into her own hands! I love encouraging women to catch their own babies! It is one of the most empowering things a woman can do in her lifetime, to push when she feels the urge to push and to push that baby right into her own hands! Weighing in at 7 lbs 3 oz with lots of vernix on her skin, this is why women shouldn’t be forced to induce as long as mom and baby are both doing well. You were well worth the wait sweet baby girl.

Baby boy born at home to first time mom! 1/7/22

January 20, 2022 | Tanya Walker | Recent Births

Baby boy born to first time mom and dad in Los Osos. This sweet family transferred from OB care third trimester. She wanted a provider that would believe in her ability to birth, even at the age of 35. Many OB’s consider 35 and older Advanced Maternal Age, but we know that many women nowadays are waiting until they finish their education and start their careers. We see a lot of women having babies naturally in their upper 30’s and into the 40’s with no problem. This mama had a 30 hr labor start to finish but never hesitated. When she was completely dilated her baby needed rest before she pushed her baby out and we provided the time for her to have that as well. NO induction needed. Welcome to the world sweet baby, it had been a pleasure to get to know your family!
