One of the most wonderful things is the relationship that happens between a mom and her birth team. I’m so super blessed to be part of birth teams, not only because I am able to photograph one of the most astounding things that happens on this earth – birth – but the friendships that happen are also just too precious. I was privileged to attend Kelley’s birth in 2013 (you can read about it and see the video HERE) and was so thrilled to be around for this one, too!
Kelley’s birth team was not just her midwife, Nicole Pegher from South Shore Home Birth Midwifery, but also her beautiful family (and of course, me!). Attended by all 7 of her kids at some point, it was just amazing to watch Kelley’s strength and the kids love and care for her. Of course, Dave is an old pro at this home birth thing, now. Just beautiful to watch him so effortlessly tend to everything and everyone!
Having a home birth is a wonderful option with the amazing skilled midwives and resources we have today, and should seriously be considered as one of the options to think about.
Thank you, again, for the privilege of attending your special birth, Kelley! The Lord’s blessings on you and your precious family!
