Valin's birth slideshow

post #1 of 6

Turn on your speakers and check out the slideshow of Valin's birth.

http://www.earthmamaphotography.com/birth_of_valin

And for those who don't remember, the 2-person film crew you see was for a TV series on homebirth and midwifery care that will hopefully be airing next year. I've been working with the producers for about 2 years now on getting the project going, and when I became pregnant in the middle of it all, they asked if rather than just being a midwife-consultant on the project, if I'd actually let them document my story as the "pregnant midwife". We thought long and hard about it, and agreed. And honestly, they were so discrete, I hardly noticed they were there when I was in labor.

I hope you enjoy the slideshow. My birth photographer just captured it all so wonderfully.
