Atlanta residents Shayla and Isaiah had two home births! Shayla always knew she wanted a natural birth. Shayla’s first child, Maya Malawi was born at home. It was a planned home birth supported by Shayla’s midwife (a traveling, holistic, elder midwife and herbalist) and her midwife’s assistant. Shayla loved her midwife so much that she hired her when she became pregnant a second time. This is also the story of her second-born daughter Sanai Nairobi, born at home in the water as Shayla “breathed her baby out.”
