5 weeks ago we welcomed our second baby girl to our family. We had a home water birth, which was an incredible experience for us! We had a videographer at our birth and will have a birth video to share soon, but until then we wanted to share the details of how everything went down the the morning of Birdy’s arrival.
It was 5 and a half hours start to finish- laboring for 4.5 hours and pushing for 1 hour. The time flew by. Everything was peaceful, light, and joyful throughout the entire labor. No stress, no fear. It was incredibly healing for me, a stark contrast to my birth experience with Indy (which can be read HERE). Every birth story is beautiful, and every moment that a mother welcomes a new child to the world is incredible & sacred, no matter how it plays out. This for me however, was my birthing dream, and I feel so grateful for how it unfolded.
I have loved sharing this story and this experience, thanks for listening!
