This birth story gets me every time ♥️ “there was less than one minute between the first image I took and full delivery...”
.
Credit 📷 + story by @littleleapling & @beautifybirth .
“The first thing I'd like to say is that Jes never saw her birth story as extraordinary. She believes all births are magical and the amazing part about this one is that she has pictures of the whirlwind. That was no fluke. Those pictures were paid for and carefully prepared for. As a professional birth photographer, it is my job to be on call, in close contact, and completely prepared for anything. .

People are asking how I was able to get there in time.
There may have been a little luck involved given how fast this one happened and the way I was contacted, but I was there on time because I was ready. I go on call for my birth clients at 37 weeks; earlier for special circumstances. My entire schedule revolves around that mama once I know she might be in labor.
.

Those who are shocked and appalled that this mom delivered on the floor should know that there was less than one minute between the first image I took and full delivery. My best guess is it took about 2 minutes for him to be out from the time their car arrived at the ER entrance.
.

This birth was exciting and fast, but not an emergency situation. In this image, Mama Jes is touching her son's head. She felt her body pushing him out quickly and wanted to make sure he was safe and supported.
.

Like myself, Jes is very passionate about birth and birth photography. Neither of us feel comfortable in the spotlight, but we recognize the importance of this opportunity to help people see value in hiring a professional birth photographer.
.
Baby was born 3:38am on July 24, 2017. This was approximately 25 minutes after Jes' water broke...and they live a 20 minute drive from the hospital.[...]

 As a birth photographer, I've had this awesome front row seat to amazing progress

CHANGE THE NARRATIVE ABOUT BIRTH...⁣⠀
⁣⠀
“I remember when first exploring the idea of home birth and water birth, I showed Glen a video similar to this. Shocked and in disbelief, he labelled it as fake. So I showed him another and another and so on until we had our own daughter arrive in such a gentle manner. And since a second daughter who came with an even gentler entry to this world. We are so conditioned to believe that birth happens to us and not from within us. Confined to a bed, on our backs with legs in the air or in stirrups and being coached to push. All of which isn't evidence based for low risk healthy women having normal labours, which is the majority of women! It's time to change our expectations. Births like this happen ALL the time. Change the fear based narrative that your mind has on repeat. Educate and inform yourself so you can empower yourself to believe in more 💫 “⁣⠀

Waterbirth from underwater! Turn on Sound. This incredible video let’s you experience what baby hears. Imagine having these loving hands wait for you, these loving voices greet you! May you be healed through their love for their second baby, first son, Riker. #sacredjourneymidwifery #waterbirth #homebirth @malindacampbell @xenham Brent, what an incredible confident help you were!⁣⠀

What beautiful moments in the life if this family!! My dream for all!!! ... As a #midwife who has worked in both hospital and then homebirth settings, I get asked a lot of questions. Some of them are more personal and unique to each mama or birth professional, which I answer in online consultation. But some I have heard many, many times. Because these same questions get asked often, I decided it would be helpful to compile a monthly newsletter to answer those common ones for FREE at http://homesweethomebirth.com/askthemidwife #BirthWithoutFear #NormalizeBirth 📷: @tesoromaspreciado.

Parfois, les images valent bien plus que des mots. 
Retour sur un moment intense, que j’ai eu la chance de partager lors d’un reportage de naissance à la maternité d’Aigle. .
Toutes les mamans sont des guerrières, elles se battent malgré la douleur pour donner la vie 🌟
.
Cette photo a été prise 20 secondes après la naissance de leur jolie poupette. Les émotions ne se calculent pas, elles se partagent. ♥️

In response to the hateful messages I got about my belly photo, I’ve been empowered to share this message louder!

Yes, I do I have a valley of lines mapped across my belly, mountains of stretched skin left over my mid section, lightning bolts on my sides and back, all signs that I carried life inside of me.... five times! 
I also have a cesarean scar reminding me that my belly was cut open twice!

My body is amazing.
My body is beautiful.
My body is powerful.
My body is strong.
My body is capable.
My body made me a mother.
My body grew a human inside. 
Not everybody has that privilege.

So while society wants to sit behind a screen and label us as flawed, I am here to remind myself and all of you that to our children we are perfect. They see behind the stretched out skin, marks, and lines. They see us for who we truly are. They know our hearts and love us unconditionally. And that is all that matters. 💗

How to give your baby the best start? 🙌🏻
Let’s talk the golden hour. This is giving your newborn uninterrupted skin on skin for the first hour of life. 
The benefits are endless including facilitating bonding, lowers stress and anxiety, calms the new born, helps colonise the babe with mums natural flora, contracts the uterus, lowers blood pressure and helps establish breastfeeding. Sometimes skin on skin can be unnecessarily interrupted by visitors wanting cuddles or staff wanting to weigh/ vaccinate babe. Unless there is a medical reason that you need to be separated from your newborn try to advocate for this golden hour! Share cuddles later ✨.

Pregnant 🤰 women of the world 🌎 stop ✋ apologising and take your birth back! I keep hearing tales (true ones unfortunately) of birthing women apologising for things that they shouldn’t....often the system that failed them that led to places where they didn’t expect...and then they blame themselves for something that was absolutely not their fault....this is why we need to work on our own self-empowerment and it’s not just a pretty buzzword but something I absolutely stand by.  #birthempowerment #empoweredbirth #empoweredbirthing #ownyourbirth #birthyourway #birthyourpower #powerfulwomen #birthpower #strongpregnancy #pregnant_world #pregnantwomen #pregnantnotpowerless #pregnantwomen #pregnantmums #mumstobe.
