We've been following our friend Sheyla around since last week when she went into labor. We thought baby Luna would arrive on Friday, the 13th. Turns out, this little lady had a plan of her own. We came back to work this morning, checked in with Sheyla who was dialated to 6cm and ready to have baby girl through a squat birth. Which, is exactly what it sounds like, pushing in a squatting position.
Baby Luna made her entrance into the world shortly after 8am during Roxette's, "It Must've Been Love" song. The baby came so fast that mama Sheyla didn't have time to squat! Two pushes and baby Luna made her entrance into this world!

Welcome to the world my precious baby Luna! Born yesterday Monday 4/16/2018 at 8:23a.m. got to the hospital at 7a.m. 6cm dilated then by 8:20 a.m. was 10cm and ready to push! No epidural, no pain meds, just essential oils, two of the best friends and coaches a girl can have @natalienmejia and @thenotsoblondetravel, and my faith and positive mindset! I'm in love with this precious blessing! . . . . . #babyluna #sheshere #labor #delivery #naturalbirth #birthday #blessed #mom #wonderwoman #loved #momlife #fitmom #healthybaby #delivery #girl #boricua
A sweet poem for our baby girl...
You are the sun to my shine
Sweet to my heart
Cup to my cake
Sun to my rise
Heart to my beat
Love to my life
