I am so excited to get to share with you today this precious birth story. I met Courtney at our prenatal appointment just a week before delivery and I knew I was going to click with her and her family. We have a lot in common and it was truly an honor to be able to document her birth story. I was so happy that her husband Brad got to be there since we were unsure if he would be in town when she went into labor. He was a wonderful support to her during her labor. He kept her smiling and laughing all through her labor, even at 9cm!

Courtney did such an awesome job during her labor and birth. She had a goal to achieve a natural, drug free birth and she totally did it! I am so proud for her! Welcome to the world Lucy B! You are blessed to be a part of a precious family that loves you more than you'll ever know.
