Giving birth is a tremendous accomplishment no matter where and how it happens, but giving birth at home ... to an 11-pound-baby ... with no pain meds?! That's just plain superhuman. It's also what one mom and doula named Natalie did -- and lucky for the rest of us, birth photographer Laura Fifield documented the once-in-a-lifetime event for all the world to see! Is it fair to call this mom a hero? Yup, we're calling it, this woman is a HERO.

"It was a beautiful, family-centered birth," Fifield told CafeMom. And from the gorgeous pictures she took, we'd have to agree. Mom and dad labored in a private, home-based birth where dad acted as doula. Talk about a test of a marriage! 

Natalie delivered her son Simon at 40 weeks and 6 days; he was born weighing 11 pounds. How did this strong mama do such a feat? These intimate photos reveal that though there was pain, there was also beauty.
