On June 7, I had the absolutely privilege to assist Amber and Troy as they delivered their daughter (drug free) at their beautiful home in the company of their 2 year old son also named Troy.

Amber made natural home birth look like a walk in the park. She was strong and courageous, a true warrior. I am so proud of her! Her husband Troy was her hero. He was right by her side the whole time offering his love and support. He held her, looked in her eyes and softly whispered words of encouragement to get her through a tough contraction. It was a beautiful moment of intense love and admiration that I felt very privy to witness.

The final moment when Baby Indigo popped her little head out was so magical. The midwife put Amber’s hands on Indigo and Amber was able to pull her out from there. Amber gently placed her on her chest and held her close. The room was filled with joy. We all started crying and hugging. We all held hands as Troy led us in a sweet prayer welcoming and blessing their new baby daughter. She was 8lbs 3oz and looked into her mother’s eyes as she nursed on her breast. Proud Papa with tears in his eyes kissed both baby and Mama.

I love what I do.
