We have shared a series of ‘that moment of birth‘ before captured perfectly by Apple Blossom Families. Recently, this same photographer sent me a series of water birth photos that took our breath away. We are sharing here, as Facebook tends to remove these images from our Birth Without Fear Facebook page.
Isn’t this amazing?!
Here are more from this birth. Mom and Dad caught their baby girl with the assistance of a midwife in their home.
This made me cry. This is breathtakingly beautiful.
These are stunning pictures! I love her bright eyes looking around and her dark hair to match daddy’s chest. It’s just all beautiful. I loved my 3 waterbirths (out of 5). Nothing like it 🙂 Congrats!
Oh my goodness! That is the most beautiful baby EVER! ! Love how calm mom and dad look too!
I totally agree with you, Shelley! I love it!

Man these are awesome. Photos like these are why I try to convince all my clients to add Morag on as birth photographer 😉
Oh this is just beautiful! That photo of baby on mums chest, looking at her like “Woah, mum, that was wild!”, just made me feel so happy. Ahh! Gorgeous!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing this with us. The most beautiful moments in life are those that we gently bring a child into this world, lift them to our breast, and revel in the beauty that is their perfect little selves. I never tire of seeing it happen again and again. Simply magical.
Your blog inspires me so much!
I so love this. All that hair is amazing, my daughter was born with a head full of hair as well. I so want a home water birth for my next :)!
What a beautiful baby! Oh my look at that face! Congrats to this family!!
These are beautiful! Im about to have my first home water birth and April and these pictures get me so excited for it!
These are just AMAZING! Beautiful family, just love it!
Beautiful! Baby girl looks so calm and content.
What a beautifully, perfect baby… and so alert!! Love it.
Such a beautiful birth : ) what a lovely family
What a beautiful baby! Amazing!
Absolutely heart warming. So beautiful it hurts.
So very precious!!! Beautiful baby!!
That bubbas face in the cuddle pic with mum is just an amazing capture, a really awe inspiring view and reason why I love and wish to get into the field of birth photography!
Oh my what a cutie… I’m scared of birth and images like these gets me excited & peaceful x
Being a midwife is the best job! Those pictures capture the beauty, rawness, and strength birth is!
This is so beautiful!! I unfortunately ended up with a c-section after planning a drug-free water birth and I never got to have this moment. I woke up about 2 1/2 hours after my daughter was born and I couldn’t hold her due to the drugs. This blog is so amazing and I love being able to see these amazing moments!
Beautiful, just beautiful.
Wow, what amazing photos. The one of the baby locking eyes with mom was incredible. And I have to say…..what a beautiful baby, even having just been born, she’s gorgeous!
I am in awe. So peaceful and loving, I wish all births could be like this 🙂 I love the photo of the dad holding the mom while in labor–such a sweet, gentle love they share. This little girl is so precious, it looks like she has her mom’s face and her dad’s hair.
Those photos are so awesome!! They totally made me relive my last birth experience (completely different, but a successful VBA2C). I’m so happy for that family 🙂
she is so dang cute
