We welcomed our baby girl, Selah Grace, on April 3rd at the Birth Center with the tremendous support of midwife Amy Hill. My water broke early in the morning, but my contractions stopped before we made it to Bloomington (Champaign residents). Amy gently encouraged me to do a few tricks to get labor going again without me feeling rushed, pushed, or like an inconvenience. She was so gentle with me and made me feel so very safe and in control of all that was happening. Finally after hours and hours of what felt like a relaxing time hanging out, true labor kicked in and Amy was on her knees supporting me while I labored in the tub. In my moment of weakness (transition, apparently), I said, "I don't think I can do this!" to which Amy and the lovely ladies assisting her all replied without hesitation, "You ARE doing it! You already are and you're doing great." An hour later our sweet girl arrived! That encouragement was something I didn't receive with my first in a hospital setting and why I will always always recommend The Birth Center to women looking for alternative care.
