Welcoming baby Emalyn!

Kate and Ryan Saumweber Hogan of Twin Cities Midwifery are thrilled to welcome a sweet baby girl into their hearts and into their lives. Emalyn Marie Saumweber Hogan was born on Saturday, December 15th, at 1:44am. She was born at home in the water, into her mama and dad’s awaiting hands, after only 5 hours of (very intense!) labor.

We are so grateful to our amazing birth team! Our midwife, Erika Urban, CPM, LM, our doula Jess Helle-Morriseey, and our birth assistant/doula Greta Fay. Of course our photographers aren’t pictured, they were so busy behind the camera, Megan Crown and Tami Tripp.

Tami Tripp also came over a few days after the birth for a newborn shoot. Here are some sneak peeks from that lovely morning.
