Baby Linden - Birth Story | Minneapolis Birth Photographer

 Laura Robinson Photography |

It was a perfect July morning at the U of M Birthplace, warm and sunny.... and a great day for a birthday!  Nearly 48 hours after arriving at the hospital, excited parents Amy and Mitch were anxious to meet their baby -- would be be a girl or a boy?!

Doula Alexia was there to guide mama through her contractions and provide soothing touch and natural birthing techniques to help baby along.  As it came time to push, mama Amy was a champ and after some strong pushing, a beautiful baby GIRL was born at 8:08am, weighing in at 6lb 13oz and 21 inches long.

As the new family was enjoying some snuggles, grandma Diane came for a visit -- and learned that her sweet grandbaby shared her name.  More happy tears and hugs as this sweet baby girl was showered in love!

Congratulations to the G family!  Enjoy all those newborn baby snuggles!
