Mother shares raw photographs showing the moment she gave birth to her son on the toilet

A mother-of-four has shared the raw photographs from when she gave birth to her son on the toilet.

Brittany Noschese, 29, from Maryland, wanted to experience a water birth in the comfort of her home, and even had a birthing tub set up in her bedroom – but her son, Nash, couldn’t wait any longer and came when Brittany least expected it.

Brittany says she feels ’empowered’ by the images as they are a reminder that her body was her children’s ‘first home’.

‘With my third child, I decided I wanted to do a home birth so my eldest children Jett, then six and Ella, then five, could be there too,’ she explained. ‘It was also supposed to by my first water birth, but in my own home environment.’

‘We had everything set up in our bedroom; the tarp on the floor, a birthing tub was set up in the middle of our bedroom.

‘But I never actually sat in it as Nash arrived whilst the water was filling up and I was still on the toilet!

‘I get goosebumps by just looking at the pictures – each photo tells a story, and you can feel the emotion.

‘I would love for people to realize that they already have the power within themselves.’

During the early hours of the morning Brittany woke up with an urge to urinate followed by another urge less than 20 minutes later. Pictured, giving birth on the toilet, with husband Zane

‘Births do not always go as planned, however each one of them can be a positive and an empowered one. Each birth story is unique and sacred.’

During the early hours of the morning Brittany woke up with an urge to urinate followed by another urge less than 20 minutes later.

But the third time, there was blood and she immediately knew she was about to give birth.

She woke her husband Zane, 31, who rang their birth photographer, Doula and midwife, who didn’t answer.

She added: ‘I knew it was happening, and that I was going to meet my little one very soon.

‘My body was progressing pretty quick and I couldn’t find a comfortable position on the birthing ball.

‘The tub wasn’t full enough for me to get in just yet but my contractions had started.

‘I got on my fours: hands and knees for the remaining of the time, but I felt the urge pee so I went to sit on the toilet and felt a sudden huge pressure on the bottom of my belly.’

‘I sat back down on the toilet and I slowly felt the baby making his way down in my body,’ she explained. 

‘I did not push – my body did – as I told Zane “the head is coming!” I was comfortable on the toilet so decided to stay there.

‘We were both healthy and doing just great then I explained what happened and she was very calm and happy for me.
