The Birth of Lennon Mae // Castle Rock, Colorado Birth Videography

This home birth was absolutely beautiful. Mom labored quietly in bed, breathing calm and deep. At times, you would think she was sleeping peacefully. Colorado Home Birth

When she moved to the bathroom before heading to the birthing tub, things began picking up. But once in the tub, it seemed the calm washed over her again. Her breathing was determined and steady, but there was hardly a sound. Her amazing doula, who had been with her through each of her previous 3 births, knew exactly what she needed to hear. Dad joined her in the water so she could rest against him (and help plug the hole that had popped the inner lining! whoops!) Big sister joined the birth team, even though it was 1 a.m. by this time. She was so sweet, watching and loving on her mom.

Things became super quiet and calm for awhile. No one was speaking. The only sound in the room was mom’s intermittent deep breathing. Then suddenly, she let out a loud yell and was pushing. Everyone jumped to their position and only moments later, a beautiful little girl was born. Big sister saw it all and was beside herself with excitement!

The next hour was spent feeding baby, snuggles and quiet time. Then measurements were taken, baby checked out as perfect and everyone slipped out into the night to let the new family of 6 rest. The next day, it was so adorable to see each older sibling loving on the newest member of their family, showering her with kisses and all trying to come up with a name for her. That wasn’t decided for the next couple days however, when the text came through, “She has a name! Lennon Mae :)” Swoon….
