I had the most amazing time getting to know this sweet mom and her family, all while capturing their journey from bump, to birth, to 6 weeks new! The love they have for each other really shines through in the film and it was a beautiful thing to witness!
Thank you for sharing your story with us Sarah!
“In September of 2016 at a women’s conference at our church, I felt the Lord speak to me and tell me that he was going to bless us with a son and that our boy would grow to do mighty things for his kingdom.
Out of nowhere my labor progress just seemed to stop. I noticed the contractions seemed farther apart and less painful. My midwife told me that my body probably needed to rest and to go to sleep and we would see what happened when I woke up.
I was screaming through them. I felt like I was coming undone. Fading in and out of full consciousness. Trying to soak in the moments of calm and connect with my body. Trying to find the strength to bring our son into the world. Then I felt the urge to push and I remember saying, “I feel like I need to push someone please help me!”
The midwives came running in, my husband climbed in the birth tub, and our girls surrounded us. I started pushing. I could feel everything! It was the fiercest labor I have ever had. One of my midwives was checking his heartbeat and she kept saying, “He is strong, strong like his Mama.” Her words gave me power. After several minutes I could feel the ring of fire and I knew he wasn’t far away. I gave one big push and out into the world came our son. We pulled him out, they placed him on my chest and I looked at my husband and said, “We have a son!” There he was. His little heart beating right on top of mine as I held him to my chest. Taking him in. Breathing him in.
On Friday, September 8th at 6:29 pm Nash Abram Kirchner was born fiercely into this world. 8 pounds 9 ounces of the Lords faithful promises. The son I was promised. The moment he was placed on my chest I felt complete. He was who we were waiting on. We needed him for our family to be whole!
A good friend of mine had told me when I was worried about the storm and his birth that God already knew his birth story and to find peace in that. She was right. God did know. He was the one who told me our son was a part of his plan. He was born into this world at the exact moment the Lord had planned all along. Exactly 9 months to the day that he was conceived on.”
