This is the birth story of Amaya . I was blessed to be her mother's birth doula and photographer. Amaya's father is currently deployed and sadly was not able to be present at her birth .
Her mother and grandmother were also with us. Beverly was such a strong, laboring woman. A true warrior. I especially love being present and holding space at birth when dad ca not be there when serving our country. It is such a difficult time for families during deployment. And when I can give back these memories the last a lifetime in print. It is the least I can do.
Following a few images are the video birth story. It is not the entire birth but mom and dad have the full private birth story .
