Jessie and Tyler (and Jessie’s mom and first time grandma) were so excited to welcome their first baby girl to the world. They arrived at the hospital, Northwest Medical Center in Bentonville, bright and early on the morning of their induction and labor began. Jessie labored through the morning (keeping me updated on her progress along the way) and by about 2pm she had almost reached active labor. Once I got the text that she was almost to 6cm, I jumped in my car to head to the hospital. As I was pulling out of my driveway, only a few minutes after her last text I got “I’m at 10!!”
I may have sped just a smidge on my to the hospital; luckily I only live a few miles away. As I arrived and walked into their calm and serene little hospital room I could feel the excitement in the air. They were still waiting on baby to make her way down and engage before pushing but things were moving right along and everyone in the room was so excited to meet their little girl.
As much as everyone was ready to meet little Presley, she was not quite ready to arrive. After over an hour of pushing, even trying different techniques, the nurses decided Jessie should rest and wait a little longer for their baby to move down on her own. Understandably, mama felt tired and a little defeated.
She rested for a while more, with Tyler right by her side, cheering her on, combing through her hair, and telling her how wonderfully she was doing. They were beautiful together.
After another couple hours of patiently waiting, Dr. Sills arrived, baby girl had made her way down, and they were ready to have a baby…
Welcome baby Presley. It was an honor to be there the day you were born and I couldn’t be happier for this little family of three.
