Couple Delivers Twins In Their Own Home - Photographer Documents The Whole Thing
Written by Carly Walker
Having a baby is an exciting time for a couple. One of the first things they need to decide is if they want to have the baby in the hospital, or at home.
- Are more comfortable for people
- Usually don’t involve any medical intervention
During a home birth, the woman will be in the comfort of her own home. She can give birth the usual way, or choose to have a water birth.
There is usually a birthing coach or a doula to help with the actual birthing process to make sure the baby is delivered safely.
A photographer from California named Robin Baker was called to document a couple’s home bathtub birth, and the photos are incredible.
The couple had already had one home birth, and were expecting twins. Twins aren’t usually born from home, and in this case the second baby was born inside the amniotic sac.
Amazingly, the father delivered the babies so quickly that the twins were already born by the time the OB-GYN arrived at the house.
The first baby was born very easily and, thirty minutes later, the second twin was born inside the amniotic sac.
