Saw this sweet family for their final postpartum appointment today. This little chunk was born on July 1st weighing in at 7lbs 8ozs. Today he was 11lbs 2ozs. The final postpartum is always bittersweet, but look forward to seeing this sweet couple down the road when it's time for number 2! #SacredJourneyMidwifery #Houston #midwifelife #homebirth #waterbirth #lovemyjob ...

Helped welcome this sweet 8lb 10oz #vbac baby into the world yesterday morning. His mama laughed and joked through out her labor journey, and talked quite a lot about donuts. (Her hubby got her donut soon after delivery!) It was such a joy to be part of this mama's victorious #homebirth #waterbirth #hbac. She rocked her journey. Picture taken by my favorite Stephanie Shirley who shot her 100th birth yesterday! #SacredJourneyMidwifery #midwifelife #Houston ... See MoreSee Less
Congratulations momma, great job!!!!
This is so powerful and true. How were you made to feel when your baby was born? ... See MoreSee Less
Like a rockstar 💪🏻
Depends on the baby. For 1 I felt manipulated, ignored, bullied. 2 I felt rushed, then cheated and angry. 3: Proud, strong, ecstatic, victorious. 4. Peaceful. 5. Surprised, lol. And grateful.
Super special. I will forever cherish that day 😚
There is a common theme amongst my clients who were due the last half of July: they have all come at 41 + weeks and all have been fast and furious!!! This sweet 8lb 14oz little guy was no exception. His rockstar mama had 36 minutes of active labor, and 26 minutes of pushing to beautifully bring her biggest baby earthside in the comfort of her home this evening. This lady did amazing through her 2VBAC, and had a peaceful #homebirth. #SacredJourneyMidwifery #Houston #midwifelife #waterbirth #hbac #vbac ... See MoreSee Less
This 8lb 8oz cutie made quite the entrance tonight. After 90 mins of labor, and 11 minutes of pushing, this strong mama victoriously birthed her baby at home in her shower and into papa's waiting hands. Such a privilege to help this strong lady welcome her first son into the world at home. #SacredJourneyMidwifery #Houston #midwifelife #homebirth ... See MoreSee Less
Congratulations on your bundle of joy!!! Good job momma!!!
Got to help welcome this sweet 6lb 14oz cutie into the world this morning. Such a blessing to help support these first time parents as they powerfully welcomed their son in to the world in the comfort of their home. This mama was so powerfully strong in what turned out to be a quick, intense labor journey. #SacredJourneyMidwifery #Houston #midwifelife #homebirth ... See MoreSee Less
Sometimes your #35week appointment involves #cupping and an #adjustment from an awesome #chiropractor. It's great when different #birthteam members come together for an appointment to best help our #mamas. #sacredjourneymidwifery #midwifelife #houston ... See MoreSee Less

A week ago I joined one strong woman as she was in the beginnings of her labor journey. There were many hurdles to work through, but with the help of the team she made for herself and the grace of God she victoriously pushed her baby out at home on July 5th at 437am. We thought we were going to have a 4th of July baby, but got a due date baby instead. #SacredJourneyMidwifery #homebirth #Houston #midwifelife ... See MoreSee Less
