Two midwifes were present and we were all the most privileged of spectators, just standing by in case she needed us, but barely lifting a finger to help in her labouring and birthing process. Her 3 year old son woke up (at 4 am) right after his baby brother arrived. He got to share in the excitement of meeting his new brother the same time that we all met him. Her family of (now) 4 crawled into their clean and cozy bed to rest and get to know their new addition. I would go so far as to say it was a perfect birth... until the power went off at 5am :)
