If many of you don't know by now- we have this awesome partnership with the midwifes over at Organic HomeBirth . By "we" I mean the amazing Danica Donnelly- owner and photographer at Danica Donnelly Photography and myself. We've been working with these midwives now for over 6 months and every birth I'm blown away by the connection they have with their clients.
On March 8th, I got called around 4pm by Jennifer that her client AnnMarie was in labor. She had told me her contractions were consistent and that she'd update me when she got there. I got things ready to go since it sounded like baby was making his arrival sooner than we thought. Sure enough, Jenn wrote me again and told me that she thought I should head that way. I got into the car and drove down to their adorable little farm. I arrived and AnnMarie was laboring, she was an absolute champ. She was surrounded by such amazing women, supporting and cheering her on through her labor. I'm always so humbled that women invite me into their space and include me in their birthing experience.
AnnMarie gave birth to Zyon Amari at 9:09pm, he was 7lbs 7oz and 19.5 inches long.
What an amazing job this mama did, she absolutely rocked her birth and birthed without fear. He was such a handsome little man! Thank you AnnMarie for letting me be a part of your amazing birth experience.
