Home Birth with an SCV Midwife- Santa Clarita Birth Photographer

I am so excited to share a beautiful home birth film. In case you missed her birth story, read it HERE and the beautiful images. Or just scroll a bit and I will share her words. She is an incredible and strong mother!

Birth of Rutha-Joy from Natalia Walth on Vimeo.

Birth after a stillborn.

I delivered 3 boys before Rutha Joy, all at the same Hospital, and all with the same Obstetrician

group. When I switched to my midwife at about 30 weeks, my one request to her, was to deliver

Rutha Joy as fast as my body would let me.

I wanted to have a home birth for many reasons. No interventions, no epidural, no OB telling me

what to do, and cutting the umbilical cord to early. Having my sons with me. The biggest reason

I wanted a home birth was, that I did not want to be at the same Hospital, the same room,

and/or have the same doctor as I did with Gideon.

I had an appointment with my Midwife the day before my due date. I asked her to strip my

membranes, and then I went to the chiropractor. Basically get my body ready to deliver my

rainbow baby.

When I made it home, my oldest son was already taking a nap. I was able to get my other son

down for his nap as well. I called my midwife and birth photographer to let them know I was in

labor.

I went to wake my husband with tears in my eyes, to let him know I was in labor. He worked all

night and did not get to sleep, as soon as he got home. Babies never come when it is

convenient, and that was true for my husband every time. He got my birthing tub ready, and I

laid down to wait for my midwife to arrive.

Rutha Joy arrived an hour after my midwife got to my house.

The things I remember about my birth, was having a wonderful moment with my midwife. I was

able let go, and heal. Let go of feeling like a failure for getting epidurals, losing my son at 34

weeks, and getting ready to accepting the intense pain that comes with contractions.

By the time my Doula arrived I was already in the tub, birthing freely. I had a few contractions,

and then I had a contraction, that made me want to jump out of the tub. I heard my midwife say

she is here. Reach down and grab her. In that moment I went from the worse pain, to no pain at

all, and was holding my little princess.

The best part about having a home birth was like always, hearing Daniel say good job momma,

and having my boys minutes later meeting their sister.

RAINBOW BABY- HOME BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER Natalia Walth Films & Photos

For those of you not familiar with the term rainbow baby, it is a baby born after a miscarriage or stillbirth. In the bible the rainbow is a symbol of the agreement made between God and Noah. The rainbow brings us beauty and hope. A rainbow baby is truly a miracle. I have photographed a beautiful amount of rainbow babies. If you look around many women have suffered from a miscarriage or a stillbirth. It is one of the most difficult things a mother has to endure. This beautiful family chose to honor their baby with a teddy that was present during the birth of the rainbow baby. Such an incredible family and I am so delighted that they chose me to be there to document. Here is Ruth-Ann’s birth story in her own words:

Precipitous Labor {Birth Videography} Santa Clarita

Precipitous labor is defined as giving birth less than 3 hours from the start of regular contractions. It’s the kind of labor they use in the movies. It’s filled with so much and it happens so fast that it leaves you wondering “what just happened?”. This beautiful mama did not expect her precipitous labor, in fact a few minutes prior to me arriving, she had told me not to rush. Lo and behold, this baby Auriella had her own plans. Here’s part of her birth story in the form of a film, starting minutes after she arrived in the world.

Here is her birth story again for those that missed the last post. If you want to see all the images from her birth story go HERE.

“I thought I had a plan. Like all mothers do, especially the second time, I envisioned my labor being shorter this time around. I’d get into the birthing tub with my toddler and she’d help me catch her little sister. I’d mostly labor at home and being a birth worker myself I thought I’d know when it was time to go to my birth center. The night of August 17th I couldn’t sleep and finally woke up the next morning around 10am. I had some cramps but didn’t think anything of it because I never imagined I’d labor when the sun was up. I grabbed my coffee and went outside with my daughter thinking it was just another morning. When the cramping didn’t stop I called my midwives and my doula just to give them a heads up. We all agreed that this was very early labor and we’d be together that evening. It was nothing distracting so I showered and got ready as I typically would but the cramping continued irregularly. I was about 45 minutes away from my birth center so wanted to get everything ready just in case I needed to leave. We packed the car and let everyone know we were coming down just to be safe around 11am and we were in the car by 11:30. My mother drove me and my daughter. I walked in while she parked the car and brought in our things. I arrived at 12:57 and had one contraction while my midwife tried to take my blood pressure. My poor doula must of thought she was in for a long day because it was barely what I would consider early labor. My midwife started to fill the tub but before I could get out another thought my contractions hit hard and strong one after the other. I couldn’t even keep my eyes open because I immediately went to my primal brain and to that magical spot we all go to when we’re ready to meet our babies. By the time my mother came in the room I was pushing and after 3 pushes I welcomed my second daughter earth side with the sun high in the sky at 1:12pm. We all took a few moments to catch our breaths and just as they laid her on my stomach my birth photographer arrived. We were all in shock and awe at the power of birth. I had one hand on my baby and the other on my heart to ground myself back to this world. I believe we travel somewhere else to meet the souls of our babies as we welcome them earth side and I was still hanging in that balance when Natalia arrived. She captured that moment and I’ll treasure it forever.”
