A few months ago I posted a beautiful collage of a caesarean birth and the baby slowly emerging from the abdomen. I thought it was about time I did the same thing to show the mechanisms of normal birth. I think it is incredibly fascinating. Women and babies are awesomely created and here is the proof .
I LOVED photographing this birth. When I arrived at the birth home I felt like I was walking into a church. It was night time, and as I excitedly jumped out of my car all I could see from the road looking in was hundreds of candles lighting the space. It certainly had a sacred atmosphere and I could sense Gods presence. Mum was amazing, she was leaning over a yoga ball embracing every single moment. Dad, was so attentive and supportive. The midwife was wonderful. She didn’t touch the baby at all. She simply gestured to Dad on how to catch and Dad did. What a wonderful way to welcome this very special babe!
