The Birth of Alexander | San Diego Birth Photographer

I am so grateful for midwives and home birth. It is safe and the best option for most healthy mothers who chose to birth naturally. However, I am also grateful for medical intervention in that a small percentage of the time it is medically necessary. This birth was a planned home birth and medically necessary transfer that ended in a Cesarean. It was long (2 1/2 days), fun, inspiring, difficult, emotional, educational….and amazing. Unfortunately, in San Diego only one person is allowed in the operating room, so I didn’t get to attend the actual birth…but the journey tells the story. There is love, hard work, homeopathy, doula care, midwifery care, friendship,┬ámentor-ship, Hypnobirthing, and a miracle in this story. His name is Alexander and I will never forget his birth day. Welcome to the world, sweet little boy! Congratulations to the beautiful family and unbelievably strong mama – you are an inspiration. Thank you for inviting me to your Birth Day! xoxo
