What an incredible birth journey to be a part of. I met these two through mutual friends, they had interviewed me and invited me to be a part of their birth team. 6 years of waiting and love went into bringing this sweet girl earthside. Watching her mother birth with such strength, empowerment and informed birth decisions was just beautiful. I was brought to tears as everyone could feel the overwhelming amount of support in the room. Thank you for having me part of your story, I am so honored!
While I was there as the birthing family's support doula I was able to grab my camera to document the birth. Labor progressed quickly so settings, lighting and positioning are about as true as being present for this story.
Mama is currently writing her birth story, I will update the blog as soon as she does!
B and I reconnected after motherhood found us. We grew up in the same town, attended the same schools and were band nerds together in high school. Our rekindling of our friendship was thanks to a local mom group where we had many play-dates together. I was so excited to hear she was expecting another little one to join our tribe. We celebrated by heading out on an adventure heading toward the gorge. I hope you all enjoy :-)
