Three years ago I attended the very special home water birth with a dear friend. I was her birth doula and photographer.
It was such a peaceful calm water birth with the smell of her husband cooking the post delivery meal . It was so sweet. Just a few moments before his birth I called her husband in because I knew it was time. Her birth was the first time I had seen the "purple line" which I blogged about over on my doula website here http://gracefulbeginningsdoulaservices.com/2014/05/checking-dilation-without-being-checked/
Teo was born on December 7, 2012. He was 9 pounds and 4 ounces! He has a big brother named Massimo.
I have been photographing their family for several years. Enjoy some special moments from the last three years in the slideshow after these photos
