This beautiful bay area birth took place at home under the amazing support of Sharon from Coastal Maternity Care. Second sweet baby girl for them, first home birth experience. And it was amazing. Mama literally gave one-maybe two -pushes and that little one flew out so fast. And everyone who needed to be there, made it with plenty of time. Which can be a true concern around the holiday season and with a fast first delivery! This family had two prayer warriors at the birth to help provide additional support. They were so great with helping, taking on doula support-roles, and keeping morale solid. So many people present to love, encourage, and support the Mama as she brought new life into this world. It was an honor to be present and watch everything unfold so smoothly. And as you’ll soon see, everyone was immediately smitten with the new arrival, including her big sister. I love when older siblings get to be present for the birth! Big sister woke up just in time to hang out with everyone for a bit and then welcome her little sister. What a way to start the day, huh?Enjoy this sweet home birth and the little girl who was welcomed with lots of open arms!
