Around 9:10, Jackie's water broke in the bathtub and that's when it became real! She quickly stood up mid-contraction. At 9:14 Joe called the midwife to the urgent news. Contractions were now very intense and 2 minutes apart. Joe helped Jackie waddle to the toilet. She was in too much pain to truly dress herself. She got on a nursing camisole and pulled her hair back. Joe helped her to bed to wait on the midwife to check her even though she could feel intense pressure like she felt when she was at least 8cm dilated with Brooklyn.
Around 9:30, Jackie began pushing. It was obvious she was scared to push hard and deliver the baby. Joe helped coach her to hold her breath while she pushed. Leni bluntly told her to push threw the burning sensation as the head crowns and hold it there in between contractions. Jackie pushed for 25 minutes and he was out at 9:55! He was already crying before his full body had made it out.
