Murrieta Birth Photography | The Homebirth of Baby Alden

January 05, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I arrived at the home of Larissa and Jim just as the sun was starting to rise and was greeted by one of the midwives at the door. As I made my way up the stairs I could hear the sounds of a mama in transition. I soon found Larissa working through her contractions in bed while her husband Jim watched over and rubbed her back through each one, all while their little girl Viola slept sweetly and soundly next to her. The connection between Jim and Larissa throughout her labor was so strong, they were the perfect team. Larissa's midwife Lauren from Wholistic Women's Healthcare and her partner Melissa were also a wonderful support. Larissa worked hard through labor with such power and soon enough their baby was in her arms. By this time Larissa's Mom, Grandma, and sisters had joined and were eager to hear if baby was a boy or a girl. Everyone was elated when Jim announced they had a son, Alden. The love and support throughout this entire labor was palpable and I am so grateful I was able to not only document but also witness such a wonderful birth.
