Youngstown Birth photographer | Mary Beth Miller Photography
Here is the full blog post from a home birth Session that I documented this past July!
It was an extra special birth because I also photographed the beautiful homebirth
of their sweet daughter just a few years ago!
The family has since moved to a bigger home, but she had the same
wonderful midwife and doula present so it was awesome to work with them all again!
I also took a few photos of one of her prenatal appointments at her home, with her midwife.
Big Brother and Sister liked to help the midwife listen to the babies heartbeat.
I love that the kids got to be a part of their Mom’s prenatal appointments.
Fast forward a couple of months…. very early one morning I received THE text
from the midwife that she was headed to their home and that I should too.
When I arrived Dad was filling the birthing pool and Mom got in while it filled.
Like her last birth, this Mama was so amazing and almost
silently worked her way through very strong contractions.
She had amazing support from her team and as contractions
became more intense her husband got in the water with her.
This Dad was so supportive during her previous home birth and once again,
he was such a huge support to his wife to help her work through each contraction….
each one bringing them closer to meeting their new baby!
I did not even realize just how close she was, but before we knew it, her baby was born!
This Beautiful Mama lifted her new baby up and out of the water!
It’s a BOY!!
Welcome to the world baby Malachi!
Grandma and the kids were just in the next room and came in to meet their new baby brother!
Mama thought he seemed so tiny, but this boy weighed in at 7lbs. 6oz.!
I am so happy that I was able to witness and document another
beautiful, peaceful and amazing birth for this wonderful family!
It is always an honor to be invited to such an intimate and sacred time for a family.
I never take for granted that I am present to witness and
document a baby taking their very first breath.

What an incredible experience, beautifully captured!
These are beautiful!!!!
Such an amazing capture, I wish I had someone photograph my daughters birth. Pittsburgh mamas are lucky to have a talented birth photographer in the area.
Thank you so much! I WISH I had hired a photographer! Still kicking myself ;)
Absolutely perfect. You got me crying! <3
Looking at other Birth Photographers work always makes me cry too! I find that to be a huge compliment :) Thank you!
Beautiful birth images and story! I love how much emotion is in her face in these images. Impressive that she worked through the contractions silently… that’s a strong woman!
