The Birth of Hazel https://www.andreagphoto.com/blog/2017/6/the-birth-of-hazel I usually let the photos & videos tell the story, but I think to truly appreciate the emotional roller coaster of this birth, a little back story is necessary!


A planned birth center birth, 7th baby. A flip-flopper indeed, when baby landed head down, they decided to break water and get things started. The early morning began at Broadlawns, followed by a trip to the library and lunch at Smokey Row as they waited for things to pick up. After checking in back at the birth center, they headed home to rest. Upon meeting up later that evening, it was discovered that baby had flipped breech. They transferred to Broadlawns, expecting a likely cesarean birth. Then something amazing happened--a successful version was performed and Daddy held baby firmly in place until she was engaged. As we entered a new day, a swift and intense labor occurred, and a surprise Baby Girl was born right into Daddy's hands. Her siblings slept in the waiting room as Mom & Dad enjoyed their brand new baby girl--only the 2nd girl out of 7 children.

A one of a kind birth for a one of a kind family.

The Birth of Meyer Jae https://www.andreagphoto.com/blog/2016/5/the-birth-of-meyer A brand new birth story!

Just 11 days ago, Baby Meyer was born swiftly on a Saturday morning. I met this Mother for the first time only three days earlier. Just in time! I arrived, that morning, to find her laboring in the birth tub in her beautifully lit bedroom. Her husband and her doula, Tammy Watkins, were by her side.  Midwife Kari and the nurses of Willowsong Midwifery Care arrived shortly thereafter, with baby soon to follow. The highlight was watching Mama announce "It's a girl!...That was awesome!" :-) 

Movie to come soon! 

Enjoy!

The Birth of Evelan https://www.andreagphoto.com/blog/2016/5/the-birth-of-evelan When 2016 rolled around, I thought maybe I'd start blogging all births. Ha! As wonderful as that sounded, when you're home with two babies with only 1.5 work days per week, there's no time to do so!

Today though, as I wait for my new iMac to arrive, I'm stalled and cannot do any video work. I'm thrilled to use this opportunity to blog!

I've gone back and forth on whether or not to write up a story and I decided against it. I'm trusted to tell the story through photo and video and I will leave it at that. 

So, here you go--my first post. Welcome, Baby Evelan!

Midwifery care by Willowsong midwives, Kari & Rebecca. Doula care by Jacquelyn Duke and Mandi Hillman.

Birth film can be found at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!
