I occasionally come across birth photography that takes my breath away. I am not able to embed the first one, so be sure to watch The Birth of Amerlyn Grace on the photographer's own website, Life in Motion. When I watched this slideshow, I had a visceral memory of my own labor and birth--leaning over a table, rocking my hips and swaying my head slowly, totally engulfed in the sensations. The pain inscribed low on my belly. The rhythmic, slow breaths, each one bringing me closer to release. The headiness of the birth endorphins making the room seem to sway and shift.
The second one by Lynsey Stone Birth Photography shows an unassisted birth.
Both videos are child- and work-appropriate. And, darn it, they make me want to do it all over again!
