As a birth photographer, I love shooting all types of births, but especially cesarean births. These mamas are some of the strongest, most beautiful women I work with. Cesarean mamas are often limited in what they can see during surgery so my photographs are the only way they can see how their baby came into the world.

Bree, a prominent doula in Denver, went into spontaneous labor a week before her due date. Due to health issues and a persistently breech baby, Bree needed a C-section to safely birth her baby. She gave birth at the same hospital where she works, so her nurses and providers knew and loved her well. We all arrived at the hospital as she began to get prepped to go back into the operating room. The OR was kept dim, music played, and everyone sang “Happy Birthday” when baby Hudson was born.

Watch Bree’s cesarean birth experience unfold below.
