Welcome to the world Brady Mack Hill!
Born @ 11:31am on December 6, 2011 in Hurricane, Utah
7 lbs. 12 oz. 20"
So here's the story, my wife Katie is superwoman and prefers a completely natural birth...at home.
She woke up at 7:30am this morning and said, "I'm having contractions, they're pretty close together. I think we'll have our baby boy this morning."
I was down with that, so I got the hot towels ready.
Katie called our Midwife, Liz Smith (she has delivered over 1200+ babies, never lost one), and she arrived around 9:45am, by this time the contractions were about 5min apart. Katie was pretty chill, just relaxing, doing some squats.
We checked the heartbeat in-between contractions. It just took a few pushes and at 11:31am Brady popped out. He had the cord around his neck, but that was no problem. Liz knew just what to do. Katie was only in heavy labor for about an hour.
It was a really wonderful experience. We had our first boy at home with Liz early last year and it went just as smooth.
Katie and Brady are doing great. Just relaxing and recovering. Another great birth experience for the Hills!
