Unassisted Home Water Birth Baby #7
Want to see the RAW footage:
What is an unassisted or freebirth? It’s a birth that without a medical attendant or medical assistance. So who did attend the birth? My photographer & a friend who ever so graciously offered being our extra set of hands when & however we needed it. 🥰What is the friend doing in this clip? She’s giving me counter pressure on my lower back (sacrum specifically). I had a chiropractor appointment that morning (that I obviously missed) to continue working on my sacrum but when I went into labor out of no where I was suffering in pain there. Luckily the kids were asleep except Jamison and she was able to offer that counter pressure so I could have Joel in front of me. His presence & touch brought me so much peace. Something magical I tell you! Would I have an unassisted birth again? ABSOLUTELY!!! I can’t even begin to tell you how empowering it was. It was so different than a home birth with a midwife in a great way! No it’s not everyone’s cup of tea and that’s okay but it was definitely right for our family! Do I suggest everyone give it a go? No. Mamas need to be where SHE feels safest, whatever and however that may be. This is MY choice & we ALL loved it! It was beautiful, magical, freeing, and badass feeling. 💪🏼 After birth: We had a sweet church friend show up to hep with the clean up process so life could return to normal as quickly as possible.
