When I arrived at this home birth Mama was playing the piano. The mood was peaceful, with candles lit and soft music on in the background. Mama was surrounded by love. Her partner, her doula, and two of her sisters were there, caring for her.
Her strength brought tears to her sister's eyes.
Mama gets into the birth pool.
Her partner encourages her to keep breathing deeply.
When it was time for baby to be born, two more sisters arrived.
Grandma and Grandpa arrive! High five!
I had to take a photo of all the shoes when I was leaving!
