The most sacred, vulnerable, and personal vlog yet where we go into all the details of the unmedicated positive home water birth story of Ailo in Ecuador. Everything from the Blessingway Ceremony, setting up the AirBnb, the birth, the Cord Burning Ceremony, the Closing of the Bones Ceremony, and more. Although labor and delivery was the HARDEST thing I have ever done, the experience left me in absolute awe of the magical, transformative, and miraculous process of childbirth. Please be kind and respectful; we hope this video inspires others in their own positive birth. We’d like to thank our friends, family, birth team, airbnb hosts, and BnF Community for all of the endless support and love we’ve received from you. The whole birth was such an incredible experience and way beyond what we could have hoped for. It truly takes a village and we’re grateful to have ours.
