    The sweet arrival of Baby #7, Oaklen, finally made his arrival after 42+1 weeks of gestation (my longest ever, whew!) the early morning of June 4, 2019.

    His other siblings spontaneously arrived at:
    & now him at 42+1

    He may be the baby but definitely outdid his big siblings in birth size with a whopping 9lbs 12.5oz & 22in even in length!

    His other siblings were:
    7lbs 0oz
    7lbs 2oz
    7lbs 14oz
    8lbs 6oz
    7lbs 8oz
    8lbs 8oz
    & now him at 9lbs 12.5oz

    What is an unassisted or freebirth? It’s a birth that without a medical attendant or medical assistance.

    So who did attend the birth? My photographer & a friend who ever so graciously offered being our extra set of hands when & however we needed it. 🥰

    What is the friend doing in this clip? She’s giving me counter pressure on my lower back (sacrum specifically). I had a chiropractor appointment that morning (that I obviously missed) to continue working on my sacrum but when I went into labor out of no where I was suffering in pain there. Luckily the kids were asleep except Jamison and she was able to offer that counter pressure so I could have Joel in front of me. His presence & touch brought me so much peace. Something magical I tell you!

    Would I have an unassisted birth again? ABSOLUTELY!!! I can’t even begin to tell you how empowering it was. It was so different than a home birth with a midwife in a great way! No it’s not everyone’s cup of tea and that’s okay but it was definitely right for our family! Do I suggest everyone give it a go? No. Mamas need to be where SHE feels safest, whatever and however that may be. This is MY choice & we ALL loved it! It was beautiful, magical, freeing, and badass feeling. 💪🏼

    After birth: We had a sweet church friend show up to hep with the clean up process so life could return to normal as quickly as possible.
