Birth of Baby O at home, Photographed by Stephanie Ralls, Oklahoma City, OK

Robyn text me at 5:10am to say she thought labor might be starting, I already had all of my equipment prepped an waiting, so I figured I'd go back to bed for a few hours and check back with her after breakfast.
At 5:55 her doula Lacey called me to tell me I needed to be there asap. 
With birds singing and sun shining through the window, sweet Olivia was welcomed into this world by her own mothers arms just before 9am.

Robyn and her husband Philip opted to keep the baby’s gender a surprise, and what a surprise it was! Robyn referred to her baby as a boy all throughout her pregnancy, and after she was born Robyn exclaimed through tears of joy “A GIRL! Jesus sure did play a trick on us!”
