Each birth story is an incredibly humbling experience. I am overcome with emotion and cry at each one. Weeks before a mother is approaching her due date we discuss her birth plan and how her ideal birth will go. I was really excited and humbled when Cami said that she was wanting to work with an amazing doula, Erin Oakeson, and have a natural delivery.
It was heartbreaking to watch as literally over 30 hours of labor later the pain became too excruciating. There were many tears shed while trying to decide if it was possible to have this birth continue according to plan. I watched as an incredibly loving husband was there to edify, support and love his wife and help in any way possible. Those moments between a husband and wife are priceless…they are one of my favorite things to photograph during a birth story. A little over 38 hours and C-section later a beautiful, healthy, nine pound baby boy joined the Davis family.
