An Abbotsford couple’s natural birth story has generated thousands of views on the Vimeo video platform.

The video, entitled ‘Theodore’s Birth Story’ has accumulated over 338,000 views and is the most viewed Abbotsford related video on the site.

The birth, which was documented by Cradled Creations, tells the story of the baby born on Sept. 14, 2016 at Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre.

The video description states that the family had planned to have dad catch the baby when it emerged from the mother’s womb.

“His face didn’t fully register at what was happening so she had to say it again and then he ran over just in time as the head was already out,” the description explains. “The doctor moved aside and fully respected the parent’s wishes. It all happened quickly and moments later the baby’s body slid out and he was holding his son in the air with both hands. He was overcome with emotion.”
