I posted this in my DDC, however thought I'd share here as well. We welcomed a baby boy at home, in the water, two weeks ago:) Although I've yet to write his birth story, our midwife wrote an incredibly moving essay about the evening he was born. Such a beautiful piece about what happens at a home birth and the power of women supporting one another:
J - Birth doula and *very* grateful mama to bouncy Q, fancy F, and mighty F!
That was so beautiful. Thank you for sharing
As we get ready to celebrate my homebirth baby's first birthday, this story brings up such sweet memories for me. Thank you so much for sharing! Your mw is an eloquent writer.
Lovin' my four-pack: M, S, a different M, and me.
That was so beautiful! Thank you for sharing. I've posted it on my FB page to share the home birth love ♥
Really looking forward to birthing baby #1 at home when we conceive :)
