Jon Jones, bass guitarist for the Eli Young Band, is now a dad of two! The musician and his wife, Sarah, welcomed a daughter on Wednesday (November 30) in Fort Worth, Texas.
Lila Pascale Jones was born to Jon and Sarah after an unconventional birth. A rep for the proud parents shared the details with PEOPLE saying, “The birthing process went very quickly this time around, and Mom had the baby while standing up … never quite making it over to the birthing tub,” the couple’s rep tells PEOPLE. “The midwife was already there and able to help Sarah through the process, as the rest of the birthing team arrived just as Lila was born.”
The couple chose for Sarah to give birth at home after watching The Business of Being Born.
“While pregnant with our son almost four years ago, I felt like just another number with my OB, then stumbled upon the documentary The Business of Being Born,” Sarah says. “I was fascinated with the possibility natural childbirth with a midwife. After doing our research, we parted ways with our OB, and were in the caring hands of an amazing midwife and doula at a birthing center.”
“The benefits of a drug-free, natural childbirth were overwhelming: [You’re] less likely [to have] a c-section, free to move though labor, less likely to have tearing, quicker recovery for mom, home faster, less distractions, breastfeeding ease,” Sarah adds. “You’re able to labor on your own terms, move freely, change positions.”
The Eli Young Band is on tour through early March.
Congratulations to Jon, Sarah and Hudson on the beautiful addition to their family. See more photos of baby Lila by clicking here.
