“I haven’t had a chance to write out my story but I have a beautiful video to capture the beauty of my birth. I am a doula and CLC and work with an amazing group of women who were by my side to support and love me. Enjoy!”  ~Stacey

She gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, Isaiah, who was 9lbs 2oz and 22.5 inches on September 2, 2011 at 4:32pm.

Awesome! I love the way your beautiful older son was giving you kisses and comforting you. And how Isaiah seemed to calm down when his Daddy held him, like he knew who was holding him. Congratulations!

That was beautiful! Made me cry, I am expecting my second any day (40w2d) and I am so excited to go through the whole birth again and for my son to be there this time too.

This is such a beautiful video. It is inspiring and loving and should be shown to all the people who do not understand about home birth. A hospital birth is never this uninterrupted and calm.

What I want for ALL women is that they educate themselves about birth by reading “good” birth books (not the fear based kind with the “catchy” title) and watch videos exactly like this one. Also they should attend meetings where others who have gone on this journey can share their experiences and their joy.

This is such an amazing video. It truly captures how beautiful, uplifting and empowering the birthing process can be if only given the opportunity. Congratulations to you and your family on such an amazing birth and a beautiful new addition!

It put me right back to when I was having my VBAC at home, 6 months ago! So neat to see how calm & peaceful birth can be.

*you ladies rock!

LOVE the clip of Daddy holding the scale, weighing his baby boy.

I am a doula and childbirth educator and also had a midwife assisted homebirth in the water on 9-2-11! I also was surrounded by a wonderful group of supportive women (all midwives or doulas themselves) as I labored and safely delivered my baby in water. It was a HBA2C so obviously a very different, wonderful, love-filled experience compared to my other births.

I LOVE your beautiful birth! Thank you so much for sharing! You are an inspiration! ♥♥
