The Birth of Violet Irene | San Diego Home Birth Photographer

Remember the adorable “E” Family? Their new bundle of joy has arrived. Surprise, another precious baby girl! This mama was spectacular. She trusted her instincts and had the most amazing home birth surrounded by people who love and support her. I was the doula and birth photographer {lucky me!}. I got the call at 8:20pm that her water had broken at 8:05 but that she wasn’t feeling much yet. At 8:30pm she called me again to say she was ready for me to join her. I arrived at 9:30pm and the baby was born at 10:57pm. Gentle, relaxed, controlled, and fast….perfect natural birth! It was her mother in law’s first time witnessing a live birth that wasn’t her own. What a sweet moment after the birth when she thanked her daughter in law for letting her witness this miracle. We are all so thankful for this blessing. Welcome to the world sweet Violet Irene!
