Embracing Empowered Birth: A Personal Journey with Connected Midwifery

In the realm of motherhood, the choice of where and how to bring your baby into the world is deeply personal and profound. For many expecting mothers, the notion of a home birth may spark curiosity, questions, and perhaps even apprehension. As the proud owner of Baby Mama The Label, and a mother of three, I am privileged to share my transformative experience with Connected Midwifery, a team that not only supported me during my third pregnancy but also played a pivotal role in the birth of my beautiful baby.

Connected Midwifery, led by the incredible trio of Michelle, Amy, and Nakita, isn’t just a team of skilled professionals; they are advocates for continuity of care, empowerment, and personalized birthing experiences. My journey with them has been nothing short of extraordinary, and I feel compelled to share the essence of this experience with mothers-to-be considering the path of home birth.

Continuity of Care: A Fundamental Pillar

Connected Midwifery places a strong emphasis on continuity of care. Throughout my pregnancy, I had the privilege of being supported by these compassionate women who knew me intimately. Their unwavering commitment to being present throughout the entire journey fosters a unique bond between the midwives and the mother, creating an atmosphere of trust and familiarity.

As a mother considering a home birth, the comfort of having a team who understands your journey from conception to birth is immeasurable. The connection formed over the months of prenatal care is not only professional but deeply personal, ensuring that every decision and recommendation aligns with your values and desires.

Birth Photography: Capturing the Heart of the Experience

Nakita, one of the talented midwives at Connected Midwifery, is also a skilled birth photographer. Her ability to capture the raw, authentic moments of birth through her lens is a testament to the comprehensive care provided by the team. The heartwarming photos she took during my home birth are now cherished memories, frozen in time for me and my children.


Having a birth photographer who is also a midwife creates a harmonious synergy. Nakita understood the nuances of birth, the moments of strength, vulnerability, and triumph. The visual narrative she crafted is a priceless gift that will forever resonate in our family’s story.

The Beauty of Home Birth: A Sanctuary of Choice


Choosing a home birth is about embracing the beauty of choice and creating a sanctuary of comfort. In a hospital setting, there’s the uncertainty of who will be on shift during your birth, the clinical environment, and the potential for feeling like a guest in a room that’s not your own. Connected Midwifery’s approach offers an alternative – a birth in the familiarity of your own space, surrounded by the supportive presence of those who have been with you every step of the way.

My home birth journey took an unexpected turn when I faced challenges that required a transfer to the hospital. Despite this shift, Amy, my primary midwife, remained by my side, seamlessly transitioning from home to hospital care. This continuity of support provided me with the assurance that, even in the face of unforeseen circumstances, my choices and decisions were respected.

Empowered Birth: The Heart of the Matter

One of the most significant benefits of a home birth, as exemplified by my experience, is the empowerment it affords mothers. A birth at home allows you to be in control, making informed decisions in an environment where your choices are honored.

Connected Midwifery embodies this philosophy, recognizing that birth is a sacred journey. The beauty lies in the option to safely deliver at home, knowing that the hospital is readily available if additional support is needed.

My transfer to the hospital was handled with utmost care and respect by the wonderful midwives at Bundy Base. I wasn’t met with judgment or negativity for choosing a home birth; instead, I experienced a seamless collaboration between the home birth team and hospital staff, resulting in a positive birthing experience.

In Conclusion: A Journey Worth Celebrating

As I reflect on my journey with Connected Midwifery, I am filled with gratitude for the support, care, and empowerment they provided. The continuity of care, the beauty of home birth, and the genuine respect for individual choices make Connected Midwifery a beacon for mothers seeking an enriched birthing experience.

For mothers-to-be considering a home birth, my story stands as a testament to the profound impact it can have on your journey into motherhood. I encourage you to explore the option, engage with a supportive team like Connected Midwifery, and embrace the empowering possibilities that home birth can offer.

Connected Midwifery isn’t just a team; they are advocates for the transformative power of birth, ensuring that your journey is celebrated, respected, and uniquely yours. Your path to motherhood is a story waiting to unfold, and with the right support, it can be a journey worth celebrating.
