A home waterbirth attended by her mother who is a midwife.

The laboring mother's midwife, who also happens to be her mother (grandmother to the baby) reaches into the water and cradles the baby's head in her hands.

The baby is immediately pulled up and out of the water...

...and is handed...

..immediately to mom.

Baby is placed directly onto mom's chest.

A warm towel is placed over the baby.

And baby cuddles against a thrilled mother while being wiped off.

HERE is the short video of this birth. It is 1.5 megs, so it might take a little while to download.
