Birth Story – DFW home birth| Baby Zephaniah

Alexandra was someone I connected with over coffee one evening. We chatted about all things birth and our passions for parents having those raw, gritty, powerful feelings in birth. She wanted an out of hospital birth where she felt strong and empowered.

I remember the days leading up to her due date, and then going past it. She was even given a date of a scheduled induction is baby Z didn’t make his appearance soon. I knew this went against everything she was hoping for. She texted me ” I hope he becomes before then but I have peace about being induced in the hospital should it come to that. The plan is to birth at home up until Monday.”

Then 4 hours later……..

“Good news! Contractions are painful and coming every 2 – 4 minutes apart. My midwife is heading over.”

If you are hoping to have your birth story documented, please reach out! I adore connecting with growing families and chatting about all the birthy things and I can answer ANY questions you and your partner might have about birth photography.

Hello, my name is Rebecca. I am a second-generation homeschooling mom of three and wife of eleven blissful years to my husband, Bryan. Early in life I had the opportunity to open and manage Mill Street Coffee Shop with a good friend of mine back in my hometown. I enjoyed the community we built and the espresso we served for a few years before moving on and starting a family in the Fort Worth area. Bryan and I stayed in the coffee industry for a while, roasting coffee and selling it at farmers' markets while we were raising our babies. We still roast for our own enjoyment and like to give out coffee to our friends. I am fortunate now to be in a season of life where I can circle back to my college studies and finish my degree from our little home in Azle. While being at home, I also help manage my husband's business - Upholstery Rehab, photograph growing families through Life DIagrams Photography, help admin for my local mom's Facebook group - Azle moms as well as host our annual Azle moms Costume Swap in October. I started my neighborhood's Christmas page - Azlewood Christmas in hopes to spread some cheer through difficult times in 2020. Please feel free to reach out, I love to connect with my neighbors!
