Meet Little Vickers

Elizabeth Joy Vickers

12.5.19| 8lbs 3oz | 19.5ā€

Labor + Delivery

I’m not going to lie, I was one of the lucky ones. Short of mildly passing out when I got my IV, the whole labor + delivery process was a breeze!

Labor Timeline:

  • 6:00am | Started Induction {3cm}
  • 7:00aam | Broke my Water
  • 11:30am | Epidural {4cm}
  • 12:30pm | hit 10cm, did a few practice pushes, + waited on my doctor because FIVE of us decided to deliver at the same time
  • 1:27pm | Eliza Joy arrived!

Like I said, lucky one. However, back labor is no stinking joke, and it literally felt like my tailbone was going to explode. 10/10 would not recommend that, but epidurals are magical. I was mostly just excited for it to be over, to not be pregnant anymore, and to finally meet Eliza.

Here are some of our favorite photos of the day! Iā€™m forever thankful for @lindelouphoto_ being there to not just take all of these incredible photos, but coach, support, and even help me figure out how to get Eliza to latch because only a real friend will grab your boob to help you feed your child!
