We love birth photos here at S + T and these ones of a breech birth are just blow your mind amazing. Silas is Rachel’s fourth baby and four days before her delivery date she found out she was breech.
The nearest hospital to her home in Portland, that offered vaginal breech birth was too far away, considering all her previous labours had been very short, and she didn’t want to get stuck giving birth in traffic…Rachel opted for a home birth with midwives that were experienced and skilled in breech births.
The photos may appear graphic to some but we think they are just so beautiful. A reminder of the power of women and childbirth and what an incredible thing it is that we can create mini-humans and give birth to them!
The time from the first photo was taken to last photo was only two minutes and 28 seconds. Amazing.
The stunning images are taken by birth photographer Karyn Loftesness.
