This is my third child and first birth at Yui Clinic. Hutch was born 3 days before his due date but we all thought he would come a lot earlier than that. I was dilated 2 cm by 37 weeks. I came to Yui on 9/9 (Saturday) with contractions about 7 min. apart for 2 hours, but after I got to Yui they slowed and stopped progressing, at this point I was 4 cm dilated, so we went home. I had an appointment Monday 9/11 and measured 5 cm dilated. We came back to Yui on Tuesday for Dr. Fumi to sweep my membrane to hopefully get me into labor. At 1:20 AM my water broke at home, we got to Yui around 1:40 AM. I had started having painful contractions about 10 min. apart. The baby was still “floating” so they thought it might be a while but I was pretty sure it was going to be very fast. I stayed on my knees with the ball through most of the contractions when the baby head started to show. They moved the ball and I put my arms over my husband’s shoulders. The contractions came one after another without much time between the rest. Our beautiful baby boy was born at 3:28 AM! I am so grateful for Dr. Fumi and the midwife. They were absolutely amazing during the labor and delivery. We are so glad we chose Yui for the care and delivery of this child. This has been my best birth experience and the best I have felt afterwards. Thank you so much to all the staff at Yui!
