Birth Photostory | Rebecca Colefax Photography

by Birth Without Fear on April 2, 2013

“This beautiful family of 5 just became a family of 6! Labour was very fast and extremely powerful – but mummy was strong, empowered and courageous. A wonderful inspiration to her daughter who was present throughout and was the best little birthing assistant I’ve ever seen.

This birth was an amazing experience for me as a photographer for this was the first time I’ve attended a birth in Australia where not a word of English was spoken the entire time, yet I still understood everything. Just goes to show no matter where you come from or what language you speak – in birth we all speak the same language – LOVE!

The placenta image might be too much for Facebook… but I just love it so had to send. The blue tint is the refection from the blue birthing pool.” Rebecca Colefax Photography

What a beautiful birth! I love how present you were in the labour and the birth … a beautiful example of that power of women! Supportive Dads always touch my heart, and the beautiful daughter, nurturing her mother, well that just blew me away! I love it when families include the older siblings in a birth … that was so powerful for her to see … nobody will be telling her any stork stories! Thank you for sharing this amazing and sacred event!

I LOVE the placenta photo! Older sibling cutting the cord is a nice way to include them. Might think about it when it’s my next time in September…
