The Birth of Lief

Karren was giving birth at a hospital about an hour and a half away from Lynchburg, so I left early in the morning that she was to be induced. She had contacted me earlier in the week and she was already dilated to 5cm so I didn't want to be too far away once the induction started in case things moved quickly. I ate breakfast and headed over to the hospital around 10AM and they started the induction soon after. Her contractions built up gradually throughout the morning and she worked through each contraction intentionally and beautifully. Lief was born on May 22 at 6:10PM and was a healthy 9lbs and 14oz!
