Another baby was born today in my world of labor support. I am a professional labor companion, it is part of who I am. I provide professional labor support, it is part of what I do. Each birth unfolds in its own way. Some more dramatic than others. Today’s birth was very fast for this first time mom. I actually missed the birth, but was able to provide some breastfeeding support. Mom, dad and baby are doing fine. Birth…the other addiction.
