BIRTH VLOG LINK IN MY BIO. When we first found out we were pregnant, we did the usual. Find a prenatal that doesn’t make me feel like shit, clean up my diet and find an awesome obgyn. I’ll take 2 out of 3 🤷🏾♀️ we switched obstetricians 3 times because nothing felt “right”. We felt like numbers in the doctors office and when we finally did meet the doctor (30 weeks😐) he was so nonchalant about our questions regarding birth. So I started reading and researching about my options like dawg, I know this ain’t it. I became obsessed with home/natural birth and the more I read about it, the more everything made sense. So at 30 weeks with the support of my mom and Myles, we met our midwife Cindi. And as soon as I met her everything clicked. I became so confident in my ability to birth my son because she trusted MY body so much. So why shouldn’t I? At our prenatal appointments, we laughed, we cried, we checked on baby, we talked about real life. We trusted Cindi because she was a real human like us. During the birth, I felt like having a doula was important. I knew Myles would be exhausted like me and I need a separate support. We met Leslie like a week before we gave birth, everything clicked. She was down to earth, she had some culture and roots and I fell in love with her. Preparing for a home birth took so much preparation, mental and physical. I had to shut out the world because everyone speaks so negativity about childbirth. I couldn’t get away from the direct comments but social media had to go if I was gonna be in the right state of mind. I put my body and my baby first and everything was PERFECT. Everyone at Jaxson’s birth was needed, the energy was perfect. I felt protected and safe by my amazing husband. My mom made me feel confident, the fact that she went thru this with me reminded me that I could do this. Cindi made sure my baby and I were healthy the whole way through. Leslie was nurturing and knowledgeable, she was there for all three of us. And jojo was my photographer (as always). She captured these beautiful moments. I will never forget the people who helped make Jaxson’s transition to earth unforgettable. Myles and I are forever grateful.
