liam's home birth - so beautiful

There is nothing like life given and life embraced and there is nothing like the privilege of seeing new life come into this world and join a family.

I've been blessed to see my grandchildren join our family. I've been blessed to see my niece join our family and in October of this year, I was blessed to see Liam Ledner join our family.

Please take a moment to bask in the life God gives as you watch Liam's home birth. BreAnna's midwife, Sue, and her doula, Alison (also a midwife), were an awesome team.

Oh gosh so sweet. I cried through it because it reminded me of my home birth and the wonder of it all. :)

Six minutes!!! Gosh that was quick!!! I pushed for 3 or four hours :P

it IS amazing, isn't it! thanks for stopping by. yup...he came so fast - the only problem was that we didn't have Bre's pool filled up like we'd hoped - just didn't expect her to deliver him so quickly.

I, too, cried.

I cried at the delight in the father's face.

I cried in knowing the feeling of the precious newborn against Mama's breast; the wonder of learning his face.

I cried in the phrase, "I'd do it all over again."

I cried at the beautiful picture of you, like an angel, praying over the birth and the family. (I have always had an intercessor in prayer at each of my births - and all of mine were home births too.)

Thank you for sharing such a testimony of God's gracious gift of life.

I was lucky enough to have my daughter at home as well.. It was so peaceful.. Just my husband, my midwife and I. Our daughter came into this world in a very dim lit, quiet room.. She is the calmest baby ever and I truly believe it is because her birth was so peaceful.

What a beautiful video and what a beautiful baby.. God is so good.

Very sweet. {sigh} We had 3 out of 4 at home.

Did he come yesterday? Our oldest was born yesterday - 14 years ago. :)

Happy Birth Day Little One!

Congratulations Lylah! What a beautiful moment to share!!! More than anything in this world thus far can rival seeing a little one come from the womb blessed by God.
