The Home Birth of Artemis Elise | San Antonio Birth Photographer

I wish there were words to describe the emotions that flowed through my body as I witnessed and documented the birth of Artemis Elise. Every birth is moving and emotional, but there was just something here that brought tears to my eyes as I watched Jessica surrender to her body and embrace each contraction.

I had been texting her midwife, Nikki the weeks leading up to this birth nervous I would miss it somehow and thankfully I did not. I rushed over to her home as soon as I got the call and walked into Jessica working through these contractions with her daughter and husband by her side.

After laboring until she felt pressure she was guided into the birth tub and gave birth shortly after entering it. She birthed her surprise gender baby into her own hands, guided her up to her chest and embraced her as she celebrated what she just accomplished.

I will never get over how incredible it was and hope you fully enjoy this amazing story
