The Joy Filled Birth of Noah in Castle Rock

Dawn texted me last Monday night - her water had broke and they were headed to Castle Rock Adventist to welcome their first baby into the world. We texted throughout the night, and I joined them the next day. The sun was shining bright...and Dawn's contraction pattern was strong and intense. I hadn't met Dawn before her birth day, but when I walked into the room, I felt like we were old friends.  

Zach and Dawn had fallen in love when they were teenagers, and you could tell that they had a deep connection to each other and to the baby that was soon to join the world. Zach's excitement was so contagious, and Dawn looked radiant, strong, and peaceful throughout the last few hours of her labor. 

When it came time to push, the nurses helped Dawn with a few practice pushes. It became quickly evident that Dawn's OB needed to get in the room quickly. Dawn knew how to push! With her mom on one side and Zach on the other, Dawn pushed her sweet baby into the world. Zach was able to deliver the baby (I LOVE when dads decide to do this), and he also had the honor of announcing the big news - It's a BOY! 

The next couple of hours were blissful as Zach and Dawn admired and loved on their baby. Their family surrounded them, offering even more love and support. And yes, baby Noah has red hair just like his papa! As I left the hospital and made the drive home to Denver, I couldn't help but think how lucky I am to do this job. There's nothing better than documenting the day you meet the love of your life. 

I love watching couples become parents. I loved seeing Zach and Dawn meet their firstborn.

Ander's Powerful Birth at the University of Colorado

Mia is a fellow Denver photographer. I'm always honored when another photographer reaches out to me about telling their birth story. We met at the Source, where I was able to chat with Mia and her two older girls. Mia has quick labors, and we talked about what her third birth might look like. She planned on giving birth with the Midwives at the University of Colorado, an incredibly mother and baby-friendly place to give birth in Denver. 

When Mia went into labor, I was actually finishing up at another birth. She told me that contractions had just started but they were growing intense. Her other births had gone quickly, so we knew that baby Ander wasn't going to wait long. We agreed to meet at the University of Colorado. 

I found Mia working through each of her contractions beautifully. Her older girls were with her (not part of the plan...but sometimes babies come before grandparent can arrive) and the interaction between the three of them was priceless. The older girls would comfort their mama both during and in-between contractions, and I found myself so moved by their presence. I couldn't help but think what a blessing it would be for them to have seen such a beautiful physiological birth. 

Mia transitioned quickly and got onto the bed to push. She delivered baby Ander in just a few pushes, and he went right into arms. 

Mia, you are strong. You are beautiful. Your children are blessed to have you as their mama. You birthed your baby in a way that I'll never forget. You inspire me.
