“Emotional and Unforgettable: Witness the Miracle of a Woman Giving Birth to her First Child on the Beach, Creating Cherished Memories During a Family Outing”

A woman gave birth to her first child at the water’s edge on a beach, with the support of her doula and obstetrician, in what she describes as a “natural and ecological birth.” Maria Luna, who is herself a doula, shared videos of her incredible and powerful birth on social media, explaining how she prepared for this unique labor and birth.

In the comments section of her video, she stated, “Today was the day, the expected day, we had our natural, physiological, ecological birth in the spot we dreamed of, with amazing details from God to live it and with the best company. We will not deny that negative thoughts came during the waiting, but as God says in His word: ‘Do not worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank Him for all He has done.'”

She added, “Every evil thought fades away, and although the previous days were rainy, thinking about experiencing labor for the first time, we never stopped believing and visualizing God’s design in this new birth. Above all, every night we sought His will on our knees. The design presented in this video comes from the knowledge, experience, and support of a team of professionals who respect both the physiological and natural design, as well as the decisions of the parents in the process.”

Maria explained that the birth was carefully planned, taking into account various factors. She said, “To go through this process, a birth plan was created and shared with a team of humanizing professionals. Variables such as weather, duration of labor, the health of the pregnancy, and the well-being of the baby, mother, and father were considered. While we couldn’t control everything, we hoped that everything would unfold according to God’s perfect will. The day turned out to be sunny, and the process began during daylight hours, with the support of the team.”

Baby Amelia was born on July 16th at 10:15 a.m. on the beach, with Maria’s husband Raul Ramirez, their doula, and obstetrician by her side. The videos gained thousands of likes and comments, with many praising Maria for her strength and determination. However, there were concerns raised about the safety of a beach birth.

One commenter expressed their concern, saying, “I understand that hospitals can be violent and disrespectful, but claiming that giving birth like this is safe is a step back of 200 years in preventable infant mortality. We can humanize births with discretion, creating ideal conditions that are beneficial for both the mother and the baby. Water births with clean water at the right temperature and osmolarity, freedom of movement and positions, and inclusive support for the father and the family. All of that is precious. But we must maintain medical criteria to ensure that the marine microbiota harboring difficult-to-treat bacteria, with high sodium content unsuitable for newborn consumption, are diluted and that there is adequate circulating volume for the baby.”

Maria explained that the birth was carefully planned, considering all the variables. She said, “To go through this process, a birth plan was created and shared with a team of humanizing professionals. Variables such as weather, duration of labor, the health of the pregnancy, and the well-being of the baby, mother, and father were considered. While we couldn’t control everything, we hoped that everything would unfold according to God’s perfect will. The day turned out to be sunny, and the support of the team allowed us to carry out the birth.”

It’s important to note that giving birth in unconventional settings, such as the ocean, raises concerns regarding safety. Earlier this year, another mother faced criticism for freebirthing her baby in the Pacific Ocean. Let us combine the well wishes and practices of humanizing birth with a responsible approach
