We decided to spend the rainy day of May 24, 2015 greeting Anna Rae, 8lb 0oz. I am sure her 2 big brothers will be so excited to snuggle her!

Heidi Joyce

Heidi Joyce

Rather than a basket of candies and flowers, one lucky family got 8lb 7oz Heidi Joyce as their May Day surprise! This little redhead wasn't entirely sure she was going to wait for the midwife to arrive, but she held back just long enough for us to get in to the house, set up, and glove up. Welcome, Heidi!

Kody Tucker

Kody Tucker

This sweet and calm 8lb 8oz cutie was delighted to meet his brother and parents on a sunny April morning at home. Welcome, little one!

Blaise Kristian

Blaise Kristian

Blaise Kristian, 8lb, was born at home on May 15, 2015! He was a polite little boy who waited until the midwife could get to his home before being born (which is more than we can say for his older brother). It was wonderful getting to help this family with a birth for the 3rd time. Welcome, Blaise!

Hazel Joy

These kids were so EXCITED to meet their beautiful little sister heart emoticon We were pretty excited too.

Melody Jane, 7lb 1oz, was born at home March 12, 2015! She is adored by her parents and her siblings, especially her sister who is so excited to finally have another girl in the house after 3 brothers. It is the lucky midwife who has been able to help this delightful family with 2 VBACs now.

Mabel Lucille

Mabel Lucille, 7lb 12oz, was born at River Valley Birth Center in March 2015. It was a quick and lovely waterbirth. We are pretty certain her big sister is going to be quite smitten with this gorgeous gal.

Jordyn Aliza

Jordyn Aliza

Jordyn Aliza, 9lbs, was born at home in the early morning hours of March 2nd, 2015. While it wasn't a waterbirth, she was born in her amniotic sac (in the caul), so it was like a waterbirth to her!

Dawson Charles

Dawson Charles

Dawson Charles was born at home, 9lb 2oz. The sweet face photo was the one his parents took. The one in which he looks like he was sucking on a lemon was his response to the midwife touching him.

Ada Josephine was welcomed at the center on 1-27-15 at 4:22am. Sweet girl was in a hurry to meet her parents, grandparents, aunt, and a wonderful big brother. Welcome Ada! It was a full and joyous room, ready to meet this 8lb 4oz beauty.
