The Birth of Baby Alizabeth | Maple Grove, MN Birth Photographer

Baby Alizabeth chose a beautiful April morning to make her arrival!  After many years of hoping to make their 8-year old son, Grant, a big brother... Kristina and Greg were about to give up hope.  And then they learned they were pregnant after all these years...

After having inconsistent contractions for over a day, mama Kristina suddenly knew it was TIME TO GO!  By the time they arrived at Maple Grove hospital, she was already dilated to 9cm and was ready to push soon after.

After an hour of pushing without medications, she had to rest.  With some help from hubby Greg and her helpful midwife, Kristina prepped for round 2 of labor.  A few more pushes and the family finally got to greet their new BABY GIRL, as the baby's gender was a surprise until she made her arrival.

Miss Alizabeth had a beautiful birthday and got to meet her big brother Grant, grandparents, aunts and uncles in just a few short hours.  Weighing in at 8lb, 2 oz and 20.5" long, this little peanut was a joy to get to snuggle for a bit.

Congratulations to the S family on your beautiful baby girl!  She is SO LOVED.
