The mother-heroine gave birth to a baby weighing 11 pounds and 2 ounces in an inflatable pool without resorting to ᴘᴀɪɴᴋɪʟʟᴇʀs. Experienced photographer Laura Fifield, who was present at the birth, managed to capture every reaction the young mother experienced during this difficult and happy moment of her life. She decided to share these stunning shots of the beautiful appearance of a newborn at home.
For Natalie from Washington, this was not the first birth, because she and her husband already had two children. The young mother understood that the baby would be large, but did not expect at all that his weight would be 11 pounds.
Her beloved husband and a friend who is a photographer were present at her home birth, attempting to capture every moment of this incredible event. The couple did not know the gender of the child, so the appearance of a boy was a pleasant surprise for them.
“When I heard the baby cry, I said, yes, I did it!” recalls the mother of a real hero.
Parents understood that their baby would be large. But when he appeared and they saw the eyes of the photographer, they realized that his weight clearly exceeded all expectations.
Natalie admitted that the midwife had difficulty lifting her son and carried her to be weighed.
“Imagine my surprise when she announced the results of his weigh-in: 11 pounds and 2 ounces! We were all in sʜᴏᴄᴋ,” says Natalie.
The parents decided to name their beautiful son Simon.
This day will forever remain in the memory of not only the parents, but also the photographer and the midwives. After all, they were lucky to see the most incredible and intimate moment in a woman’s life: the birth of a baby, especially such a hero!
