Between her first birth and this one, Leigh Ann began working as an admin assistant for the midwife who also attended all of my births, and as a result has gotten even deeper into the world of all things birth. She’s opened herself up in new ways, learned so much, and entered into this birth with such positivity and joyful expectation. Her birth team was full of friends — the midwives and other staff of Simply Born — who are trusted and safe people for her, as well as people she can laugh with (how important!). Combined with the steady support of her husband and small daughter, she had a sweet set-up for a wonderful experience. And she got just that. What a simple, sweet (and relatively quick!) birth this was.

Here’s the film I made for them. Grab your tissues, cos you might need them.

PS: I also did still photography for this birth and I will share those in a future post. :)

I know many mamas who follow this blog are hoping for similarly beautiful births, and I’ve created a little guide to help you out along your way. It’s called “6 Mistakes Mamas Make When Planning a Natural Birth (And How to Avoid Them)” and you can download it now by filling out the little form below. It’s perspective-shifting, actionable, and really pretty, too! :)
