Pregnant Mom Goes Into Labor With Twins And Midwife Sees Home Birth Isn’t Going As Planned

Paul and Kelly Kahler were absolutely thrilled to learn she was pregnant with twins. One boy and one girl — and Kelly was carrying 17 pounds total.

In June 2017, Kelly was 39 weeks and one day pregnant when she went into labor. She had been going to a doctor that specialized in twin births and breech births. The couple planned to have a home birth; it was very important to them, and they took all the necessary precautions to ensure a safe water delivery.

Paul captured the emotional experience on camera, from driving to the midwife’s house for a checkup to spending their last moments with their young daughter before she became a big sister.

Kelly labored at home, just like she planned. But at the 24-hour mark, everything changed.

Since Kelly was showing little progress and the babies were situated so high up in the womb, the doctor broke her water. Hours passed — and still no babies.

It was time for the Kahler family to drastically change their birth plan.
