I've got Elliott's home waterbirth video up on my blog now, if anyone was interested in watching the more intense few minutes of his birth. :)
I can't believe that was over two months ago! Geez.
i saw it on your blog this morning and watched it! i've really been enjoying your daily photos...and enjoyed the video. what a beautiful birth!
congrats mama...i can't believe it was over 2 months either! time flies!
So gorgeous. Well done. The video is kind of haunting, especially with the last song. I'm so happy that you were able to document it all so well. What a cherished keepsake that will be. Thanks for sharing it.
Thanks mamas! I don't know how many times I've watched it myself. I think I kept figuring that I must have imagined away the bad parts of his birth, since I couldn't remember anything but bliss. Intensity, sure, but bliss. But after watching it and reading the midwife's charts, his birth was exactly the way I remembered it. It's so special to know that I'm not making that up!!
i've watched the video of Phoenix's birth as well over and over! the first time i watched it i was awed at how calm, peaceful and loving it was...and so grateful to have that on film! i find myself going, wow was that really how it was?!?!
