Who caught your baby?

My wife and my midwife caught our little darling. My wife was too nervous to catch her on her own, so they both had their hands on her as they caught her and brought her up to my chest. :eyesroll

Loving stepmom to daughters aged 13 and 17. Naturally birthed my littlest one 6/21/13.
LOVE makes a family. Genderqueer breastfeeding, cosleeping, attachment parenting Mama

Our midwife caught our baby. I think my wife would have been too nervous to do it herself. I think it's cool that your wife caught your baby.

My husband caught our first (I was semi-sitting in the hospital bed that time), husband plus the mw caught the second at home, and midwife caught the 3rd, 2 and 3 I was on hands and knees and with #3 he barely made it into the room to see, it was quick.

Our homebirth doctor caught #1

Midwife caught #2

Number #3 came fast and ended up landing on the bed (I was on all fours)
