This wonderful family hired me as they prepared to welcome their son, a second child for mama, and a first born for dad! I was blessed to be with them as their doula and birth photographer. This sweet mama had been wishing for and preparing for this home birth for 7 years, since she had her first child, a daughter, unmedicated in the hospital. We all thought that this birth might go fast, as some second births do, but instead we were together for 27 hours as we trusted her body and the universe’s divine timing for the birth of this baby boy. When it was all said and done, it was perfect!
A Home Birth Story- The Birth of Baby B
I am a natural-minded mom who loves coffee, wine and books, along with cooking for my family and getting dirt on my hands in the garden with my kids. I believe in attachment parenting, free range kids, and the importance of nurturing our children’s individual spirits. I’m passionate about birthing rights, physical autonomy, informed consent and helping women embrace their power.
Nearly nothing gives me greater joy than supporting families on this crazy journey through parenthood/birth and creating captivating and emotional art that will be your family’s heirlooms for generations.
