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!
