Birth of Baby Silas | Tampa Birth Photographer

Labor of Love in Lutz is an amazing place to bring a baby into this world.

The midwives are so kind and have a great hands off approach to childbirth. They respect the body and women to know what they need during labor.

When I got there *A was contracting in the bathroom and in between she would spend her time getting hugs from her husband. Each woman is different with their needs during labor. Some want a hands on approach from their partners and some want to be left alone and then there is everything in-between.

Dad: Baby is here!

Silence

Dad: I dont know.

Silance

Dad: No we dont know that yet. They haven't weighed him yet. 

Silence

Dad: No we dont know. They dont do that right away here.

 

You see when you give birth at home or in a birth center they do not do the newborn exam till about an hour after birth. This gives mom, partner and baby time to bond. Those vital signs are not going to change in an hour and bonding right after birth is very important!
