This week's birth story was sent to me by a Marvelous Kiddo reader, Alex Tower Ewers, of Maus + Nugget. Made in San Francisco details the beautiful home birth of Alex's first child, Kirian.
I love all the sweet and intimate details of birthing at home that are shared in this little movie; things like decorating the house with flowers and getting groceries in early labor, Patrick's adorable antics while setting up the birth pool, and reading and napping together through the night. And what a peaceful birth! Alex and Patrick are so in-sync with each other and focused and loving. I also enjoyed seeing their blissed-out post-birth reflections as they cuddle with their gorgeous new baby boy.
See, and enjoy, for yourself:
