The Birth of Freya Anne ~ Northern New Jersey Birth Photography

Friday, March 6, 2015

Another beautiful, family-centered home birth for the books! As mama Sonya entered labor, I was in communication with her for about a day and figured things were progressing, though I always wait for the go-ahead from one of the parents. Lucky for all of us, midwife Dina Aurichio of New Birth Experiences, upon arriving on the scene, encouraged Sonya to go ahead and call me in. Doula Nicole Buratti of Bend & Blossom was there supporting the family as well. I dashed out the door. Walking into Sonya's birthing space, she had just begun assuming the birth stool to actively bring her baby earth side.

And so it is, I have no labor photos to share publicly (though many for the family of course), but I assure you -- this mama was brave and strong. She had daddy, Egemen, her first two daughters, Seren and Lilya, midwife Dina, and doula Nicole by her side.

Enjoy a few highlights from just after delivery and the hours thereafter.
