I don’t get a lot of opportunities to photograph births at the birth center, but when I do I’m always impressed with how wonderful they are at Charleston Birth Place. Ramsey’s birth was no exception. I arrived at the birth center as mama was entering transition and the room was so calm and peaceful. Mom was laboring in the tub while Dad supported her. She was so strong and beautiful as she worked hard to meet her new baby girl. Just before Mom started pushing, Dad got into the tub with her to provide support as she pushed baby out and into her arms. And just like that Ramsey was out and snuggled in her mama’s arms. It was perfect and beautiful.
