Oakland Home Birth Photographer
An early Monday morning around 4:45am, I got the call that one of my birth clients was in labor. I zipped over to their home with just enough time to get some beautiful laboring images before their second baby boy was born. My clients had wonderful midwifery care with Treesa, from Birth with Treesa, a local Oakland midwife who also runs a birth center, Bay Area Midwifery. Funny story about that– we ended up working together yet again less than a week later for another Oakland birth. More to come on that one later, but it was a joyous good time. This birth went without a hitch– Healthy baby boy and a healthy Mama. My favorite part about this birth was that big brother was in the next room over. When he woke up, grandma was able to bring him in to meet his new sibling. His reaction was so precious and absolutely priceless. He offered baby a diaper, gave lots of nose nuzzles, and was so affectionate. Enjoy this beautiful home birth story!
