My Own

.:: birth ::.

This was a gift to myself.

A gift I will treasure forever and ever.

Each of my children have fulfilled something in me that I was hoping and longing for. After years of infertility, Ryenne’s birth healed my broken heart. But her birth was nothing that I had hoped – a very medical C-Section. When I had Kai, his birth was beautiful and exactly as I had hoped  – A VBAC in the water. His birth healed my soul. But both Ryenne and Kai’s births were not documented. When I found I was expecting again – my last baby – I knew that this was my final chance to have the birth documented. And there was only one person I wanted to do it: Michele. If you’ve ever seen Michele’s birth images, they are magnificent. From the moment I found I was pregnant, I started saving and even parted ways with my 30″ Apple Cinema Display to treat myself with these images. Cruz’s birth images bring me full circle and fulfill me.

Without further ado….

Cruz’s unmedicated birth took place at the Austin Area Birthing Center in the tub in the Santa Fe room.
