I received this birth announcement/story via email. It is just so different than a lot of discussion and stories shared recently. It’s refreshing! Thank you Kacie for sharing and congratulations! ~Mrs. BWF
I have been following you on Facebook for some time, and LOVE your page, your inspirations, and stories! I am a Chiropractor and Doula and just gave birth to my first baby Luca Vaughn on June 15, 2011. He was 6 lbs 10 oz. It was a full moon, a lunar eclipse and he was born in the Caul! We feel so blessed, and he is perfect! It was an AMAZING experience!!!
We were at home, had a birth tub, an amazing birth altar with pictures, candles, and a beaded necklace made from my friends during my blessingway/shower. I had an amazing support team with my midwife and her apprentice, my chiropractor/doula and my amazing partner.
My labor was 9 hours (which actually felt like 4 or 5) and was amazingly intense, magical, mystical, empowering and exactly what I had envisioned. I would do it over and over and over again!
I feel so blessed to be part of the ‘clan’ of natural birthing women in the world, and feel the primal and ancient link to our ancestors who just birthed and just trusted the process! I know birth choices are very personal, and support all women in whatever they choose for their birth. For me, having no medication, no interventions, and just being surrounded by pure love, support, and to bring my baby into the world peacefully at home, was the MOST AMAZING experience of my life!
I want to thank you for your dedication to birthing without fear… we are WOMEN and we are INNATELY DESIGNED TO BIRTH! Yes, it is intense, but there is NOTHING that we cannot do after we have experienced the power of birth! I am completely transformed, and am SO in love with my baby!
