Birthing on Hand and Knees

Thank you Stephanie for sending these in and allowing others to see what birth is like off your back! ~Mrs. BWF

I know it may be because it was my birth, but I love these pictures. I think they are so amazing. I had no idea I was capable of something like this. My labor was over 30 hours, mostly because the last part of my cervix would not let go. But our little boy finally made it August 31, 2011 at 5:15 am.

The first picture: His head was crowning in this picture. If you look to the right, you can see my husband looking. I just love this. I thought his reaction would be to faint, throw up, or to not even look. Instead he was on his hands and knees trying to get a good look of his little boy coming! For some reason, Facebook thought this picture was not appropriate and removed it. :(

Second picture: This was so incredible. I remember when his head “popped” out my husband instantly said, “Steph you were right! He looks just like me!” I love seeing his hands there catching our little boy. ~Stephanie
