031: My Second Home Birth Story

My Second Home Birth Story

I knew that my son, Hayden Beau was coming to me earlier than his due date. It was just a matter of how and when. As every baby does, he had his own plans on how he wanted to come earth-side.

In this episode, Jesse and I share everything from when my water broke to holding him in the birth tub on his birthday. It was an emotional, painful, yet beautiful home birth experience. We were so lucky to be in the comfort of our home with our amazing birth team. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to bring a human into this world.
