Welcoming Theodore

(best in HD)

Recently I spent nearly 2.5 weeks in Tennesse documenting the home birth arrival of a little chubby boy into his warm-hearted family. What an honour I have to be entrusted into such intimate times in peoples lives, seeing hearts unfold as a new life is welcomed. Finding that love & family are so very much the same no matter how far you travel.

This is a special birth video not because I travelled halfway around the world to document it but because it includes three parts, the waiting, the birthing and the welcoming of this sweet boy into his family. It was so special to be able to capture the magic of waiting for, birthing and enjoying a new baby and get to know Amelia and her family – now I feel like I’ve left some of my heart behind in Tennessee.  This video is a little longer than my birth films usually are but it’s worth the little sit down with a cup of tea to watch and enjoy.

As always, I am honoured by Amelia’s openness to share her video & images from the birth of her sweet little boy with you all too.

      Hi Whitney, the lady in the red shirt who is supporting Amelia does aromatherapy and brought essential oils to help Amelia in labour. I cannot speak highly enough of how effective they were. Amelia had a history in her previous labours of being ill but every time she felt like she needed to be sick she smelt them and the urge passed. She also smelt them to keep her calm and focused. Made me REALLY want an aromatherapist at my labour!!

        I’m curious to know what main scents she was smelling? I’m due in 2 or so weeks and am thinking about ordering some essential oils for other things I am going to make. Just thought I’d throw those scents in too! Please let me know ASAP!! This was by far one of the BEST videos on birth and the whole surroundings I’ve EVER seen! That is a beautiful family and the mother was one of the most naturally beautiful people I’ve ever seen!

          Hello Brooke, I’ve checked with the mama and this is what she said re: the oils. Peppermint to stop the vomiting sensation. Wild Orange and a blend called serenity in the diffuser in the living room. There was also something to clear the air in the room where the baby would spend its first day but she couldn’t recall what. Thank you so much for your kind words and wishing you a beautiful birth!

            The oils used looks like they are doTerra oils. They are amazing!! So worth looking into for healing and overall wellness. If you have any questions about them you are more than welcome to contact me. :)
            This video was awesome, magical, and heartwarming!! What a wonderful gift. I don’t even know this family but after watching this video feel attached. lol :) Beautiful!!

            So interesting about the oils. I was going to ask the same question Whitney. At one point in my labour I needed to pee in order to make some more room for baby coming. The midwives suggested I smell some peppermint oil which we thankfully had close by. I can’t say it actually helped with peeing at the time, but baby came very soon after anyway. I’d be keen to look more in to aromatherapy in labour and birth. Thank you for sharing Georgia, and thank you Amelia for allowing us into your story too. So precious!

      OH. MY. GOODNESS. That was definitely the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Probably on the topic of birth, or otherwise! I just had my third baby – also a home birth and also in water – 6 days ago on the 31st. So it’s no wonder that I watched most of that with tears in my eyes! Georgia, you captured it all so perfectly. The love, the light, the beauty & tenderness. The fact that the dryer was probably going to warm towels & such for the birth, and water boiling to heat the tub. And the way that the air is just swollen with love in anticipation of baby’s arrival. Mama is glowing, the kisses and snuggles are never-ending, and the light – oh, so much light! What beautiful, beautiful work, Georgia! I’ve never seen anything like this before. But I plan to check out your other pieces now, and to forward this to practically EVERYONE I KNOW!! I must echo what another viewer said in saying that you are a champion for natural birth, and what it’s really like. This video should be a pre-requisite for any aspiring parent, and the medical/birth community at large. This is the way it was meant to be! We were created to have babies like this! And your creativity captured it magically. God Bless You, Georgia. And Amelia’s whole family, too!!

    WOW, that was AMAZING!!! What a most precious and priceless gift you have given this family. I can barely see through my tears to write this comment, I was so moved by this. Little Theodore was exactly the same weight as y Jasper was at birth and that was 11 years ago now. I didn’t have anyone to capture any of the precious first moments of us meeting our son, the memories just live in my heart. I am certain this precious family will treasure this movie more than you will ever know. Thank YOU for sharing your talents with us too xx

    My most precious aim of late is to be a mother. My love and I talk about it often and I quite literally can’t wait. Obviously the one scary part of it is the labour but since watching your videos, yes I know it will be the hardest thing I ever have to do but gosh I am so at peace with it. My friends scoff when I say I want a home birth but oh my, the calm and love that shines through your films makes me know I am hoping for the right thing. Thank you not only to you Georgia (seriously, I may schlep the family to the other side of the world when it’s my turn so you can document it) but also, thank you to the sweet families who allow you to post these memories online. They are such a positive influence on the subject of birth, especially home birth. They will definitely be in my armory for when I am being scare mongered into a hospital! Love Elle xo

      Elle – from one mama to another, you ARE hoping & dreaming for the right thing! Don’t let them scare you into the hospital. My first was born in hospital, but my second and third were born at home – just had the newest one 5 days ago! And the experience of being surrounded by the familiar, and laboring & delivering in water, IS so peaceful and SO WORTH IT!! May you enjoy a BEAUTIFUL home birth when your time comes, and may Georgia be there to document it!! ;- D

    I am a grandma to be, our baby will be born in August 2013. I loved every second of this video, from the beginning to the end. Amelia is an amazing woman and mother, the entire family is soooo loving, I love the kisses they share and how they touch and hug each other. The birth was amazing, Amelia is a very strong woman, my heart bled for her when she was in pain and I cried like a baby when I watched this awesome, amazing and beautiful video. It is fantastic Georgia! really superb! What i found really amazing, was Amelia’s face when she saw it was a boy! How nice was that? Everybody nowadays knows what the sex of the child is long before birth, and it seems to me they preferred not to know. I like that. It was like that when I had my children.
    What a loving, caring family, the children are beautiful, the little sister is the sweetest and cutest child! The little brother an angel! Congratulations to Amelia and her family with Theodore! He will be as sweet as his siblings!

    Oh, Georgia. These are just stunning. If there is a word that means tender and fierce at the same time, this mama is it. I love the set up of your video. Watching all the love in that family unfold before and after makes the birth part extra special.

    I especially liked the little things you threw in. A pot boiling. The dryer going. A glimpse of how the world continues even though something miraculous is happening just one room over.

It felt so warm and familiar, and brought back so many memories of my recent waterbirth. You did an incredible job recording this for her – I am so thankful I had mine recorded now too… it is such a powerful moment to look back on. She looks like the most gentle and caring mama, just sooooo precious.

    First of all, sorry for my poor English, I’m Belgian and speak French.
    Then, thank you from my heart for this movie. Thank you for all that it awakens in me.

    Can you forward my comment to the mother of this video?

    Whenever I have a little blues, whenever I say “Pfff”, “What’s the point?”… I look at this video.
    Basically, it is especially the video of a home birth, but that is not why I watch.
    What I look, it’s this mother who melts my heart.
    His watchful eye, his infinite tenderness, gestures and smiles overflowing with love.
    I’m not jealous, I’m not saying that she is perhaps pretend for the film, I did not say “pfff still a perfect mother”
    I am just carried away by this beautiful film, I look, softened and soothed by this lovely intro music,
    I warm the heart and said to myself:
    “It is this mom that I want to be.
    This is what I want it to reach.
    This is what I wanna be. This is what I will be for my children. ”

    Again thank you …..

    Wow. Such a beautiful video! I am over here in tears as my two little girls go about playing. What an incredibly special way to document the birth of a precious new family member. Momma did great, I am always amazed at momma’s who handle birth so well. Motherhood is clearly something she was meant for :)

    This was just amazingly beautiful. I was in tears the whole time. Your work in capturing the details for this beautiful family was amazing. Blessings to them and their gorgeous little one!

    I have a question, not sure if you’re able to ask the mama this, but I loved their bed frame and would live to know where it’s from if you can. :)

    Thank you so much for this beautiful video. Is Amelia british? She sounded like she had an accent. Also, how long was her labour from active labour until the birth? It seamed fast but maybe it was the editing. Thanks!

    My husband and I just watched this video. We are going to be welcoming our first child in December and we plan on having a homebirth. This video was so amazing and reassuring that we are making the right choice. This is such a beautiful family, and such a wonderful job was done in the making of this film! I cannot wait to meet our little boy in the comfort and safety of our home. This film just makes me so happy, there is just so much visible love in this family!!! <3

    There arent enough words to describe how beautiful this video is! I am not a mother yet but someday planning to do a home birth and excited about those possibilities! It is videos like this I truly believe that make it seem possible. There is so much scrutiny out there for home births and the risks, I am so glad to see more things like this! What a GORGEOUS documentation of such a beautiful thing!! As a photographer and as a future mother I LOVE THIS with all my heart!!
