Super Fast Unintentional Unassisted Home Birth 10/11/22

This was my second birth with this sweet family. The mama called me at 12:08 am, she wasn’t sure if I should come yet as contractions were mild but coming every 4-5 min. We decided since he water had been broke since 10pm it might be a good idea for me to head that way and just even sleep on the couch if needed. So I gathered my things and headed that way. Baby boy was born at 12:27am, just a few strong contractions after we hung up the phone, weighting 9 lbs 4oz, caught by dad on the bathroom floor! I made it for placenta! All is well. So lovely to serve this sweet family again.

Very quick labor, Unintentional Unassisted Home Birth 7-10-22

These sweet mama called me at 4:14 am and said she was having contractions but they were mild, she was talkative but we decided I would head that way. She hung up the phone and had another strong contraction, made her way to the bathroom and had a couple more which brought baby into her arms at 4:40am while I was still on my way! All is well. Welcome sweet girl, weighing 8 lbs 7 oz!

Baby girl born 2 weeks late to first time mom, 6/30/22

This little girl made her mom and dad wait and wait and wait. Her mama tried all she could to get her to come but babies really don’t come unless they are ready. She waited 14 days past her guess date before she decided to meet us. Her water was broken 53 hours before this first time mom birthed her baby at home in water into her own hands! I love encouraging women to catch their own babies! It is one of the most empowering things a woman can do in her lifetime, to push when she feels the urge to push and to push that baby right into her own hands! Weighing in at 7 lbs 3 oz with lots of vernix on her skin, this is why women shouldn’t be forced to induce as long as mom and baby are both doing well. You were well worth the wait sweet baby girl.

2nd birth of the day, 6/14/22

This was my second birth of the day. This sweet mama made birth look so easy! So easy in fact that we were setting up the tub and thought she had at least a couple hours left and then all the sudden she was pushing! Baby was born safely into her arms within 2 quick pushes, so fast that my assistants who lived 5 minutes away didn’t make it! But she got the calm, peaceful, ease of birth she needed this time around and that’s what we love! This little bundle of joy was 7 lbs 12 oz and is loved very much by her parents and siblings!

Baby girl born at home 6/14/22

This was my second birth with this sweet family. She came fast! Her mama called me at 5:06 and told me she thought we water had broken on the toilet. I told her to get up and walk around and see if she started contractions and she told me she couldn’t really walk. I knew that meant I needed to go check on her, I arrived at 5:35, dropped my bags and caught a baby at 5:36! Barely had time to get my gloves on. When they are ready, they are ready! Weighing in at 8 lbs 15oz this sweet little one is balancing out the house with some girl energy!

Wishes do come true!

Beautiful baby born at home 3/10/22

This beautiful mama is a favorite of mine. This was my second time birthing with their precious family and so we had sweet history together. She rocked her labor and birth just like last time but with active labor only lasting 3 hours before she pushed her baby boy into the water. We were able to have a birth photographer there to capture this amazing photo, photo credit to Candice Photographs. Welcome gorgeous baby boy, weighing in at 8 lbs 14 oz. We are so happy for you all!

Beautiful baby girl born at home to first time parents! 2/23/22

This sweet girl used to be my neighbor. She always knew that she would have a home birth. When she and her partner became pregnant they were so excited. She had a pretty hard pregnancy so I really hoped she would have a really fast and easy birth. It wasn’t as fast as we had hoped for, and she had to work hard for it, but they did it. They did it beautifully together with the support of her sweet family nearby. Welcome beautiful baby girl, you are so loved by your family. I am so happy very for you all.

Beautiful home birth 1/25/22

Blyss and I attending the most beautiful birth. One of those births where the sweetest things just kept happening. The birth took longer than the mama expected for her 3rd baby, but in those hours we had moments of several women crying in the room, her little ones were very much a part of the birth, even swimming in the birth tub. The moments between her sweet mama, sister and grandma were more precious than I can tell you with words. The pics will speak for themselves. The oxytocin was FLOWING. ❤
