Week 24

September 14, 2013

Week 24 was very busy and full of photo shoots, editing, slowly recovering from the cold/ flu thing from last week and teaching my first birthing class.  YES!  I said birthing class.

For those of you that don’t know I have been working since March to become a certified Childbirth Educator through ICEA.org.  I started my first 4 week Childbirth series on Monday and it was great.  I had a great time and hopefully my students did as well.  We will see when the class reviews come in. 😉

I am teaching Alpha Childbirth curriculum which is “everything that you would get at a hospital childbirth education class and MUCH more. You will learn how to stay low risk and what to expect in labor, but you will also learn how to make informed decisions, the truth about the “slippery slope” of interventions, why the United States’ c-section rate is one of the highest in the world and how best to avoid one, how to relax, how to stay in control (mentally and physically), how to rely on God’s word to stay focused, how to care for your infant and how to succeed at breastfeeding.”

It has been a goal of mine since Ada was born to attend more births as a birthing assistant/doula, photograph and video more births, and teach birthing classes.  So all you ladies expecting a sweet babe and are interested in taking a childbirth class let me know, or if you just want to talk about birth I love to do that too.  Here is to reaching goals!

Back to the weekly photo.  Brittany Wood took these for me this week.  Thanks pal!

Three of my favorites things were in the same room about a month ago.  The Reeder’s, childbirth, and the opportunity to take photos and video.  Annie and I met as young college students and have been apart of each others lives through many life milestones: from weddings to 4 children being born between the two of us.  We have worked together, been apart of bible studies together and just lived life together since about 2004.  Proud to call Annie a friend and so grateful that I was able to document her most recent child’s birth.  I was unable to attend her last birth because I was in labor giving birth to our daughter Ada.  Olive and Ada were born 12 hours apart on May 15th 2011.  One more event bringing us closer together.

Theodore Orion Reeder was born at home late June 25th.  Josh was an excellent birth partner and husband and Annie was peaceful and brave.   I am so thankful I could be there.  I love you guys and look forward to our beautiful future together.
