Cheylah Azlan Shaniqua Schochet
Local midwife Julie Schochet welcomed her daughter to the world
at home after a fast and intense 4 hour and 15 minute labor
on Friday August 29th at 7:30pm ( a shabbat baby!! ),
Cheylah weighed 6 lb 10 oz. and measured 19 and 3/4 inches when she was born.
"it has been an incredible experience, after serving women and their families as a midwife for so long,
to have it finally be "my turn"; to experience being pregnant, giving birth, and entering motherhood first hand!!
...and to be on the receiving end of such wonderful midwifery care!!! i want to thank Kiersten, Nicole, Joan, Bobbie,
and the rest of the great team at the birth center for supporting me so fully during this huge and
truly awesome time in my life! You gals are great!"
