I thought you might be interested in seeing some of my labour photos (this site will not allow > 32mb uploads, but when I can get around this I’ll try and upload the video too). I’ll start with Levi’s birth (Arlo’s has much less media as it was so quick, but I’ll post it another time). I hope these images don’t scare you. That is not my intention. I just think the art of birth is so secret these days that people don’t know anything about the process, or what it’s like, until they are having a baby themselves. I hope by viewing these photos, you can see that although birth is painful for most people, it is also manageable, especially with the help of relaxation, movement, upright positioning and water immersion.
It’s probably beneficial to read Levi’s birth story before looking at these photos.
It was not long after this, when I had to be transferred to hospital. We took our new digital SLR camera but we were very novice at using it so the pictures are all blurry and not at all worth showing, but here is one just to give you the idea.
Then he was here.
Hope you enjoyed my birth story in photo form!
