Home Birth Story Told By a Photo Montage

by Birth Without Fear on September 25, 2012

Brittanie writes, “Here is a link to the video we made for our home birth last month. It is a little long, but I wanted to include each picture that our birth photographer, Amanda Brayton, took. They all mean so much to us. Our son Finley weighed 10lbs, 5oz and was 20 inches long. My midwife was just amazing throughout my pregnancy, and during the birth. She also brought her student Midwife, and she was also just amazing. I am so grateful to the both of them…

I love your blog. I read and watched the birth stories you posted even before getting pregnant. We did not have a home birth with our daughter, and I was uneducated in regards to birth. I started researching birth in this country shortly after the birth of my daughter, and your blog was one of the things I found. Keep doing what you are doing!”

Below, a beautiful photo montage of her amazing home birth, photographed by Amanda Brayton Photography.

just beautiful! I would love to know the names of the songs used as well if you wouldn’t mind sharing? I am having my first natural birth in January and would love to add them to my play list!

Here are the songs we used for the video. We used Dream by Priscilla Ahn, The Story by Brandi Carlile, One Voice by The Wailin” Jennys, Sweet, Lullaby by Dixie Chicks, Sweet Baby by Michelle Featherstone, and Everybody Ingrid Michaelson. These comments made me smile, thanks. 🙂

Gorgeous! I lost it when when your little one had her hand on your leg. Just love. Hope everyone is well. Thank you for sharing. <3

I can’t wait to be a mom and I am so inspired by the promotion of home births! As long as there are no anticipated complications, I plan on using a mid-wife for my future kids and having a home birth. It seems like a beautiful experience, rather than the stark medical experience at the hospital.
