A birth story (Alyssa & Adam) – Newburyport, MA

I don’t even know where to begin. Do I tell you about how amazing my baby sister was? Do I tell you about how supportive my brother-in-law was? Do I tell you how honored I was to be able to witness the birth of my nephew? I could go on and on, honestly, and I would be gushing about it all. In short, my baby sister opted for no epidural (!) and went purely with nitrous oxide (hence the mask-thingy) throughout all 18 hours of labor. Can you say rock star? Adam never left her side (save for a tiny cat nap) and talked her down after each contraction. After all of that, a beautiful, nearly 9-pound baby boy was born, head FULL of hair. All of a sudden, there was more love in the world. Should you have a couple of minutes to catch a glimpse of the G-rated version of events, please check it out.

This is something I will *never* forget. While I have given birth two times before, having the wherewithal to take it in is a completely different story. Alyssa and Adam, thank you a million times over for trusting me to be there with you, camera in hand, to document the start of this new chapter. It may be the most challenging and most rewarding thing you’ll ever do.
