I received a text around 4:00 a.m. letting me know that contractions had started. As a doula, I have been trained to instruct mothers to get as much rest as possible and that's just what I did. I received a response not too much longer that getting rest was an impossibility at that moment. At 5:00 a.m. I received a call that they were on their way to the hospital. From the sound of her contractions, it was obvious that baby Ellie was very close to making her first appearance. By 5:30 a.m., when I walked in the room, I found mom already pushing!! 'Ellie' Warren was born on January 31, 2013 at 5:52 a.m. and weighed 7lbs 12oz. What a precious baby girl!
