After an incredible pregnancy, Joan found herself going into labor at 41 weeks and 2 days. Her baby was in a posterior position which resulted in terrible back pain and a labor journey that everyone expected would go on forever. After laboring at home for 24 hours she transitioned to the hospital where she had the most transformative bath and an unexpected delivery of her baby girl.
