09 August 2006 - New Orleans - Louisiana. Labor pains. Michelle Elise, first time mum at 45 years old. Michelle's first labor pains started at home at 4.30am on the 8th Aug and continued for two days until delivery by c-section of our baby Benjamin Sylvan Elise Varley at 6.01pm on the 10th August, some 61.5 hours later. We took Michelle to Oschner Hospital as her contractions came every 2 minutes. Heidi Rau, (in black, civilian dress) a trained doula helps Michelle as she tries to manage her excruciating labor pains at home. Hospital technicians monitored Michelle. Her contractions subsided once she reached hospital and she was told to wait 2 hours, her cervix having only dilated 1cm at this stage.
