Where do I begin?…. I am a lover of all things birth. I think it’s beautiful and magical and since I took Bradley classes while I was pregnant with Charlotte a passion has been lit inside of me. Our bodies are miraculous and fantastic and created to bring precious human life into the world. Rad, right?! I was thrilled when my friend Carlie decided to try for a drug free, Bradley birth! Having had 2 babies I know what my body likes to do, it takes things SLOW. (enter irritated/sad face emoticon here). I take forever and there is no rhyme or reason but everyone’s bodies just do their own thing. Well, I felt really blessed to watch Carlie labor and give birth. She was a *text book* labor and delivery and it was so exciting to see things go so quickly and smoothly. Praise the Lord Piper was born healthy and perfect and loved from the minute she arrived.
Carlie, thank you. You are beautiful in all your birthing glory. There were brief moments when you had doubts but I knew you could do it!! You are magnificent and there are not any earthly *push presents* that would ever do it justice. You pushed that little one out all by yourself. You and Gabriel made, yet again, a little beautiful person. Thank you for asking me to be a part of Piper’s birth story. I hope that these images will remind you of the war you waged to get this little one here. YOU ARE AWESOME!
