Ashley labored SO beautifully. She chose a natural birth and delivered at St. Joseph's Hospital in the Birth Center. The room was filled with such positive energy. From Ashley, her husband and her nurse. She breathed through her contractions whispering words of serenity. Peace.. Relax.. She used hypnobirthing - which from what I understand was a playlist of positive affirmation she played on her phone. Her husband was so supportive. He held her hand in-between 'pressure waves' (the positive spin on contractions), massaged her through the back labor. And in the moments she was unsure if she could get through this, he reminded her of how incredibly strong she was. When it came time to push, she did so with graceful, quiet power. Only 20 mins after beginning she gave birth to their beautiful baby girl, Charley Ann. She is perfect, and already so loved. What a wonderful addition to a wonderful family.
