The Birth of Faye

Today, I’m delighted to share a very special birth story with you. This particular one has been sitting quietly in my portfolio for quite some months, and has steadily been accumulating lots of views! For those that haven’t already seen it, it’s time to share it here on my blog.

This is the birth story of Faye


There was a great calmness in the room while this strong mama laboured. I’m still in awe of her serene and peaceful birth experience. This mama was incredible, and this sweet family of three couldn’t be more perfect. It was truly an honour and a privilege to be there with them as they welcomed their daughter, Faye, into their lives.

Panos, Meg and Faye, sending much love to the three of you. Thank you so much for allowing me to share your story xx

With love,
~ Natalie
