A friend recently gave birth at home in a planned homebirth and it brought back so many great memories of when my girls were born. My birth stories for them aren’t ready yet, but I will post them soon.

In the meantime, I just wanted to share a few photos of the magic of births, especially homebirths…

Itty's Birth

Resting at home, in my own bed, hours after giving birth to my first daugter.


Itty Watching Mommy

Homebirth Benefit #1: Enjoy a Yop on your Mommy's bed, while she breathes through contractions in her rocking chair.


Minutes Old

At 20 minutes old, Bitty enjoyed very important skin to skin contact with me in the bathtub. No rushing here.


My wonderful midwife, weighing Bitty for the first time.


And before you know it, the birth of your kids is just another sweet memory…

Just Blink

In a blink of an eye, Itty doesn't need a step and Bitty is being...naughty.
