"I did it. An all natural unmedicated home birth. This was the most humbling / limit pushing yet awakening and completely empowering experience. I can’t thank my team enough for delivering my son safely," she shared alongside a series of photographs documenting the birth process.

 "This experience has changed me forever and I couldn’t of [sic] asked for a more amazing and supportive partner," she wrote.

"Daddy showed the f up for us.. I couldn’t of done it without you. I can’t believe he’s here," she wrote.

In a vlog of the birth process shared to YouTube, Bre revealed that the "baby had a long crown caused by a nuchal hand (hand up by ear), so he needed a little respiratory support."

"I noticed he wasn't crying," she noted.

However, the midwife stepped in, and the problem was solved. "Finally baby cried," Bre gushed. "Best sound I ever heard."

"This was the most limit pushing/painful moment yet completely empowering and beautiful," she went on to say. "The intensity of birth takes over your whole body."

"I swear I was pushing so hard, screaming and crying I started to break, I started doubting I could do it," she added.

"I kept saying, 'Why won't he come? Get him out.'"

"At a certain point, I had left my body," she added. "I didn't remember a lot of my birth until my team sat with me to process my birth, which I felt was sooo healing and helpful. I can't thank them enough and my amazing partner who showed the [expletive] up for us. We love you so much," Bre ended the video.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
