My niece was born last year, and I've been meaning to make a shorter, public slideshow to share with everyone. Well, I've finally gotten around to it, and spent the afternoon balling because of it. I'm 2 months away from my own birth (which my sister will hopefully be attending) and it was very emotional to watch her last birth story again. As you will see in the photos, everything moved quite quickly. There aren't many labouring photos because I was helping her as a doula and then she got in the tub and literally birthed her baby. One moment she was in labour, the next she had her baby in her arms, then the paramedics had been called because of her bleeding and we were all at the hospital. It may look dramatic, but it was lovely, and calm and she focused on her new baby girl in her arms the whole time.
