It was interesting to meet Regina and her husband, Chris, when her water had already ruptured and she was in labor. People are definitely at their most basic human level during such a time. Regina’s labor was long, spanning over two days, and they both handled it amazingly well.
It was apparent Regina’s mother was skeptical of a natural water birth and the use of a birth doula. You could feel how much she loved her daughter and didn’t want to see her in any discomfort. When Miles joined us earthside, I cried as if I had known his family forever. Everyone in the room was truly moved by his beautiful birth. I believe Regina’s mother was not only changed by watching her daughter give birth, but her mind was changed about natural birth as well.
