Geneva Elise Barrett Childs

Born 5:35 am, 8/2. 8 lbs 1 oz.

She came about ~30 seconds after the water broke with no one in the room but a very surprised nurse (who'd just arrived), the doula, and me. The nurse was next to me, struggling to pull on her glove, cursing, maybe stressed. I was telling her to calm down, but then I looked down and saw my little girl's head, already out. I reached down and caught her as she was born into the world, and that was one of the most beautiful moments of my life.
