The birth of Noah William Kapustka

WOW! I have developed an even deeper understanding of how strong a woman can be. Right now one of the strongest women I know is Rachel Kapustka. I was invited to be a witness, supporter, and documentor of the birth of Nick and Rachel's first child Noah William. Nick and Rachel's ideal birth was arranged to take place in their home. That was where it all started at 9 p.m. on Thursday morning. I arrived around 10:30 p.m. so excited I was finding it difficult to breath. This was the beginning of an unbelievable 46 hours of labor. After working as hard as she could to bring her baby into the world on her own. Nick and Rachel made the call to go to the hospital for some assistance while both the mom and baby were still doing well aside from the exhaustion of laboring for so long. Nick got to hold Noah first while Rachel recovered from surgery. We are all so grateful to have this healthy little being in our lives. He has already taught us some important life lessons about patience, trust and faith. I am honored to have been part of such an amazing experience and look forward to watching this family grow and thrive. The Kapustkas came home from the hospital today.
