Triplet Home Birth…Photo of 2nd Baby Born in Water Footling Breech

by January Harshe on January 30, 2012

“A photo of my double footling baby B from my triplet home birth in 2006.”

“Here’s the one of the three of them (one of the midwives was holding them). Max is the one on the right with the little purple foot. His one foot was fairly bruised from funky positioning for a few days.” -Kathryn

Awesome picture and amazing home birth with triplets!

Amazing! We prove medical professionals wrong everyday when we trust birth! Most TWIN(and singleton) moms don’t trust their bodies, let alone triplet moms. <3 Much love to this triplet mommy!

This is so amazing!! I shared the photo with my friend who is pregnant with triplets and so badly wants another homebirth but is having issues finding a midwife since midwifery is so crazy in our state (nc). Congrats to the mama, so beautiful!

What an inspiring story.
I wanna have twins!!! (I don’t know if I can handle triplets :-p)


Jennifer January 30, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Wonderful photo! How fantastic that you birthed your triplets at home! I’m in PA and it sounds like I would be hard pressed to find a midwife even willing to attend a homebirth of twins, should we ever be so blessed. I would love to know more about your birth and am curious where you birthed (what state/country).

Incredible proof that ANYTHING is possible!! Beautiful.

Can we have a birth story…..pretty please? Someone convince her to write one!


Megan December 30, 2012 at 9:45 pm

She has a video with more info that I believe she is very comfortable with having publicly shared.


Cheriena December 31, 2012 at 10:35 am

Absolutely fantastic!
