The birth of Scarlett ( Birth photographer Worcestershire West midlands )
All births are special, all births are sacred, all births are an honour to witness, to be trusted in someones most special & memorable moments, but witnessing your 19 year old niece birth her first baby like a flipping pro, with only gas and air & a paracetamol, has got to be up there as one of the most tear jerking moments of my birth photography career. The documentary birth photography of Scarlett was captured in Worcester, where the midwives were so caring & kind, and respectful of mums space. I totally loved that they had essential oils on hand ready to help with the various stages of labour should you wish. It was totally refreshing to have the encouragement of the hospital & staff in the administering of alternative therapies, Scarlett’s midwife was also a dab hand at a back rub & teaching gran & dad how to help out by giving massages, warm water on the tummy, & all the little things that make labour that bit easier.
