. .:: It's not often that it happens, but sometimes mommies contact me prior to conception to check my availability. This was one of those times! So you can see how this baby girl's birth was particularly special and exciting for everyone involved! This is the story of the birth of Beatrice, born at home on a quite and cool Thanksgiving eve. Her birth was attended by Kim Lenderts, midwife of Front Range Midwifery, and Jennifer Ivans, doula of Beautiful Beginnings Birth Services. This was my first opportunity to witness a cord burning ceremony, where the umbilical cord is severed by fire, rather than with scissors. ::. .
