As a Seattle birth photographer, there’s often an immense flood of emotions filling me to the brim when I witness the entrance of a new little person into this world. A surefire way to squeeze a few tears out of me is to see a mama labor and deliver with such a strong partner by her side. He was her breath, and her rock, and stood calm at every minute.
The lovely ladies at the Puget Sound Birth Center in Kirkland were wonderful and warm with their tender care and expertise. Just a day earlier, this couple made the sudden decision to follow their hearts and switch their birth from the care of a hospital , where they previously delivered their other 2 children, to this quiet and unassuming birth center. Here you can read, in her own words, the story of this mama’s journey to having her much loved and longed for, 3rd baby.
