It isn't often I get to photograph home births from beginning to end. Because I am side-lined with my broken/healing foot, I was able to chronicle this amazing birth from December 20, 2008.
Join in this family's bliss - and I wish everyone a beautiful holiday season.
The cord was keeping the baby from progressing on his own, hence the hands. Once the cord was pulled from around his neck, he was born gently into the midwife's hands (per the request of the family).
Thanks to my family for allowing me to share these images with all of you! I love you lots.
