Born at home: a home birth video

Posted by


I absolutely love this home birth video shot by Georgia Brizuela — here’s what she had to say about it:

Here is the film I had the honour to document of the home water birth of Oliver. Thank you to Heidi & John for wanting to share this intimate experience to encourage other parents.

In a quiet street in the suburbs a little boy was welcomed into the peacefulness of his parents arms in the privacy of their lounge room. Surrounded by family and his midwives. Born in his caul into water, Oliver Byron, 8lbs.

You can see Georgia’s archives of birth photos and videos at her website.

  1. In tears at work. I’m having my second home birth in February and can’t wait. <3 what a beautiful and peaceful way to start my day.

    • Didn’t think it would happen to me but YES- TEARS AT WORK as I man the reception desk on a slow day. Beautiful!

  2. Absolutely beautiful. The love and happiness in the moments after he was born….I’m in tears at my desk.

  3. gorgeous … tears here too! having our 5th son at home in March – this was so timely! thank you for sharing!

  4. How awesome! I am due in 12 days and having a home birth with my first. I hope it is as totally awesome. Thanks for sharing

  5. Tears here as well. I had planned a homebirth with my first, ended up 2.5 weeks overdue, induced at the hospital, labored for 24 hours and ended up with an epi and then c-section. I often wonder what woudl have happened if I had stayed home. I hope I am strong enough to try a homebirth if we are lucky enough to get pregnant again.

  6. Oh wow, Georgia is the mama from Theo’s birth video! I’m still not close to being pregnant, but from the first time I watched that video, I knew I was ok about becoming a mum. Just beautiful, the love in these videos is palpable. Definitely having Georgia shoot my birth one day!

  7. I just love the afterglow on the mother’s face. So beautiful. My 4yo son watched it “mum… that was a nice movie :)” <3
