July 27, 2014

It occurred to me last week that although I have attended more than forty births since 2011, only about a quarter of them actually appear on my blog. As a result, I decided to have Birth Week here on my blog and on my Facebook page. Birth Week will feature all things birthy including a new blog post each day featuring photographs from a recent birth.

Also, in celebration of nearing the 1000 fan mark on my Facebook page, I will be giving away (along with two other fabulous birth photographers) tickets to the Birth Without Fear Minneapolis Meet-up scheduled for August 16th, 2014. See how to win your ticket at the bottom of this post!

Without further delay, I give you the water birth of baby Oscar. This birth happened at home, attended by the fabulous midwives of North Star Midwifery – Aly and Rebecca. There was a guest appearance by midwife Emme who covered briefly for Rebecca who was returning from vacation. Also attending was their doula Zoe Mccrery.
