I first met Monica and Colby at White Rhino Coffee shop where we discussed the birth plan for their third child. This would be a new experience for them at a new location, birthing a son, and trying a natural birth.
Birth Story of baby Jonah
This birth story begins with unexpected news during a prenatal checkup. When Monica’s plans of having an unmedicated birth had to be brought back up for discussion.
She was diagnosed with Intrahepatic cholestasis of Pregnancy (ICP) and was now on the clock to have a baby under the care of her midwife. Thankfully, Monica’s decisions for a mostly unmedicated birth were still supported and she would get to see it through with help from midwife Carla.
