Today’s birth story comes from mom of two, Monet Moutrie, who shares her experience giving birth at a birth center outside Denver, Colorado. Monet comes to birth with the unique perspective of having photographed hundreds of births as a birth photographer—in other words she’s pretty much seen it all! After listening to her birth story you should definitely check out her birth video as well!

You can connect with Monet on Instagram (gorgeous birth photos all day every day!) and Facebook as well as via her website and collaborative project Birth Becomes Her.
