I am honoured to share this little film I documented at a birth two Fridays past. This is a home water birth of a fourth and final baby for this family. I was so moved to witness his mama Hannah be supported through her labour and birth with so much tenderness and affection. I was so surprised to see Hannah happily knitting away when I arrived, trying to finish the ‘girl’ beanie option in time for the birth. Lucky her best friend Amy who had flown up from Adelaide could knit too! Little Cole is welcomed with the love of his mama and papa, each of his proud big siblings, his midwives and his mama’s best friend.
I am the luckiest to document these moments and the most humbled when a mama chooses to share them with you, thank you Hannah.
