"I had finally bought the last of my home birth supplies and felt ready to have my baby nine days before my estimated due date. My husband went out with my daughter and after I took a much needed nap, I had a sudden burst of energy. I happily cleaned the house to my heart's content without interruption.

It was the morning of the 12th of December in Winnipeg, Mb, Canada; I was asleep, when at around 4 in the morning, I got the call from Brian, Melissa's husband, that things were intensifying, and they believed this was it! and that their midwives had been called over as well. I shot right out of bed, heart racing, eyes widening immediately and a great big grin taking over my no longer groggy face. I zipped through all my things, got some clothes on, whispered to my husband that he was to be in charge on homebase that day because I had to run to a birth! One of the very best things I have to tell him nowadays - see ya Hun! I'm off to do what I love the most!Read More

Olive was born on a beautiful spring day in her home in Central Oregon. She was welcomed by her parents Simon and Rebekah, and her big brother Peter.
The midwives at Bend Birth Center arrived only a few minutes before me, and Rebekah gave birth to Olive just 30 minutes after I arrived in a birthing tub in their bedroom. This was my first birth, and I couldn't believe how incredible it was. I pulled the camera away from my face just after Rebekah gave birth to find tears streaming down my own face.
The backroads of Placerville, CA were dark and flooded as I made my way to this peaceful countryside homebirth.

Things began to progress quite quickly from there.Read More
