A Surrogate Birth – Indianapolis Birth Photography & Video

Every birth story is beautiful but this was was especially amazing. This was a surrogate birth. After many losses, Mom was unable to carry the baby herself. The family was able to find a surrogate to carry the baby for them. Since it was a surrogate birth there were a few extra people in the room, but it made for lots of emotion and a beautiful selfless story unfolded. It was clear, that everyone in the room had the best interest of baby at heart.

My favorite moments were when mom was able to see her baby that she had waited so long for (over 4 years) and when mom was able to hold her beautiful baby for the first time. In both these moments you can see the utter joy on her face! Dad was a trooper too. He was overcome with emotion at many moments. This birth was truly a joy to be able to witness.

I normally end blog posts with the video. However, I’m going to start this post with the video from this birth. I feel the video tells the birth story even better then the pictures. This little one’s mom tells me how she has watched this video almost every day since their little one has been born. I’m honored to have been a part of this birth and I’m even more honored that mom treasures these images/video.
