Giving birth to a child in the comfort of home, surrounded by loved ones can make for an unforgettable experience. Abbey is a Maryland mom who made this decision more than once (she and her husband welcomed both their daughters at home) and was eager to do the same with her son on the way. Little did Mom know that her home birth, and the images a local photographer took, would showcase the miracle of childbirth in such an incredible way.

Lindsey Welch, a trained duola and owner of Lindsey Welch Photography, captured Abbey's home birth photos -- including an amazing photo of baby Nash nursing just above the placenta, the very lifeline that once united the pair. These photos show the raw power and connection between mother and child, not to mention the intimate journey of giving birth at home. The imagery of this water birth touched our hearts and, no doubt, changed the lives of Abbey and her family forever. After all, it's the day her family of 4 became a family of 5.
