Portland Oregon Birth Photographer | Pearl Anna Laura Hoekstra

February 6, 2015

I was thinking Sunday night how perfect it would be if Colette happened to go into labor the next day. I had absolutely nothing to do! And what do you know, I get “the text” the next morning! I headed to the hospital at around 11:45am, when she was at 5cm. By the time I got there (40 minutes later) she had already progressed to 9cm. Not even 30 minutes later, after not even 5 pushes, beautiful baby Pearl made her appearance at 12:59pm.
