June Elizabeth was welcomed peacefully into this World at home, and was caught under water by her mother. I watched on from the side of the birth tub, protecting this woman’s space as she powerfully birthed her baby.
I met June’s mother just a few weeks before her due date, and I feel particularly fortunate to have cared for her. She had delivered all her previous babies at home, and never felt settled with a new provider and birth space. It’s never too late to find peace in maternity care, y’all.
