Coleen Garcia shared her experience giving birth to her firstborn with husband Billy Crawford—baby Amari—through a video she uploaded on The Crawfords' YouTube channel.
Amari was born on September 10 this year and is now three months old. To celebrate this, they said in the video description, "Reminisce with us as we walk you through his birth! 🥰 God has been so, so good to us. Amari is truly is our biggest blessing, and his birth was absolutely magical! We filmed this over a month ago, and we’re thrilled to finally be able to share it with you. So much has happened since then, and we’re hoping to share more of what our journey has been like so far!"
The video was 44 minutes long, sharing moments from both Coleen and Billy. It also contained raw footages from Coleen's labor to the water birth process. As they have written, "This video, and these moments, are very raw, vulnerable, and personal, but we are proud and happy to share them with you because it is, and always will be, a major part of our lives. This is OUR story, and Amari’s birth has been nothing but good and beautiful to us. Everyone’s story and experiences are different, so if you find yourself here, please share the good vibes with us!"
Throughout the video, the couple went into details talking about their birth experience. Coleen also shared information regarding her own home water birth. However, she clarified that for those interested, it is still best to listen to your healthcare provider when it comes to giving birth. "To everybody who wants to know more about water birth—is this for you or not—and what I have to say about it is it's really different for everybody. Not everybody is a good candidate for water birth so again, you have to listen to your health care provider at the end of the day," she said.
