Being a birth photographer in Spokane, WA allows me the honor of working with multiple area hospitals, birthing centers and many talented midwives in our area. For this lovely home birth I was able to work alongside Spokane River Midwives. It was great to finally meet the two midwives who make up Spokane River Midwives.
I met them back in June, in the comfort of their home to discuss their plans and ideals for a natural, home birth. After having a not so great experience with the birth of their first child in a hospital setting she was determined to have a better experience the second time around. Over the months to come we stayed in contact as her belly grew. Her pregnancy was going smoothly and everything was set for their home birth.
It was early in the morning when I got the phone call that labor was progressing and they were ready for me to come. Dad let me know their midwife was also on the way. Mom had only been laboring for a few hours at this point but contractions were coming closer together and increasing in strength. When I arrived, mom was laboring in the birthing pool. With her husband by her side, holding her hand and coaching her on they welcomed their son earthside. It was absolutely stunning. And a beautiful home birth. A little later on, Dad woke their daughter up to meet her brand new baby brother! They are now a family of 4 and oh so blessed.
