A birth photography story in San Francisco: “And this baby makes five littles!” A very quick {she called me in at 5:00pm; baby was born before 8pm} and beautiful birth. I love the honesty in home births– the communal support of the Mama. This Mama was extremely well supported by Hannah and Cynthia of Maiden Voyage Midwifery. As you’ll see in the video, they needed to re-position baby to help the laboring process, so Hannah, with the support of the other ladies, took a few contractions to do some “spinning” of the baby. The coined term “spinning babies” means to help rotate baby into a better, more comfortable birthing position. And it worked! Baby boy #5 made his arrival not too long afterward. The other part I loved about this birth story was all the other little stories it included: the mountain amount of popsicles consumed, Hannah showing the boys the joys of blown up gloves, the boys holding their Mama’s hands through contractions, the little ones trying to jump in front of my camera, and how everything unfolded so beautifully. Without further ado, here’s a home birth story.
