This was a brief but wonderful homebirth in the water. When Mom’s placenta did not deliver on it’s own, a transfer to the hospital was necessary. Thanks to the family’s midwife, Meka Hall, and Dr. Bootstaylor at Emory Midtown, this transfer was a peaceful one. 

Mom and Dad were home with baby Eloise by the next afternoon!

{This birth story is somewhat of a collaboration as the first 2 photos and video were shot by the Dad before I arrived!}
