Here is the full blog post from a homebirth that I documented last month!   This birth was very special to me because this Mama is a friend and a local midwife.   I have attended quite a few births with her because we tend to share some of the same clients.  She is truly an amazing and wonderful Mother and midwife.   Her clients are so fortunate to have her at their birth.   She is so wonderful, that I often contemplate having one more baby just so she could attend the birth!  I was ecstatic when she asked me to not only photograph the birth of her third baby, but to also do a maternity and newborn session!

Her birth was fairly short with perfect timing!   I arrived to their home just before 9pm and her precious baby girl made her arrival at 11pm and I was home in bed not long after midnight.   And like most water births that I attend, it was beautiful and peaceful.  She did an amazing job birthing her healthy baby girl who weighed in at 8 lbs, 8 ozs!

When I arrived, the soon to be big brother led me upstairs to where his Mom was laboring and
then he assisted his Daddy with filling the birthing pool.

Their daughter was by her Mom’s side for most of the night.
Like a little doula she reminded her Mom to relax and breathe.

Her husband was so supportive during her labor!  I loved watching them together.

Before we knew it, Mom lifted her beautiful and perfect baby up and out of the water and into her arms.

 Big Sister’s wish came true when she was told that she had a baby sister!

After they checked out their new little sister, big sister crashed out on the couch and big brother wanted to watch a train video.

Congratulations to this beautiful family on the birth of their daughter, Opal.

I’m always very grateful to my birth clients when they allow me to  share their birth images on social media and on my website.  Birth, especially a homebirth, is such an intimate and sacred event.    I never take for granted the great privilege it is to be invited to document this time for a woman and her partner.   Not all of my clients are comfortable with sharing such a private moment in their lives, and I completely respect that decision.   Each of my clients, weather it be a birth, family or newborn session, have the right to choose if I share their images online or not.
