Sarah gave birth to Moon at home with the help of a midwife and a licensed OB/GYN. Besides, she also has a twin brother, Knox Blue Howey who is two hours younger than her.

Moon has mixed ethnic ancestry as her mother is Persian and her father has Scottish descent. In addition, Violet’s paternal grandfather is the longtime acting coach and director Bill Howey.

Moon’s Older Brother William Was Also Homebirthed

Moon’s older brother, William Wolf Howey was born on 8th July 2009 and is 13 years as of 2022. During his birth, Wolf weighed around 8lbs and 6oz.

Just like his twin siblings, William was also brought into this world through the water delivery process. After his birth, Sarah talked about her experience during an interview with Pregnancy where she said,

“The lights were dim and we had the heater going, so it was nice and warm, He came out into a tub of water and then my husband brought him up for air, “

She continued,

“I never thought I would be one of those wacky chicks who say ‘I loved my labor’ but I loved every part of it.

It was the best day of my life,” concluded Sarah.

Why Did The Former Couple Prefer Home Delivery Over Hospital?

The former couple, Steve and Sarah decided to welcome their children at home after watching a documentary called The Business of Being Born.

Furthermore, after welcoming their first son, Sarah revealed she preferred home birth due to her belief in the body’s natural ability to give birth without the help of doctors and nurses.

She said,

“I had a home birth because I really believe in the body’s natural ability to give birth. The medical profession has kind of warped women’s minds into thinking we don’t know how to birth and we need doctors and epidurals and Pitocin,”

Similarly, Howey expressed his idea of home birth saying,

“You have more control during a home birth and with hospital births, there is a system in place and we didn’t like the whole system, Sarah did not like the idea of being injected with stuff and having a c-section.”

Due to her determination to bring all of the kids into the world in a peaceful, and warm environment, Sarah and Steve went with the home delivery.

Violet Moon Had a Somewhat Risky Delivery

Although Shahi had very simple and quick labor while delivering her children, Violet came out with a cord wrapped around her neck. She explained the horrific moment during a podcast. There she said,

“I was in the tub, I was in the zone. Violet came out. You know, how it is. But she was blue and not breathing. She had a cord wrapped around her neck.”

As per her then-husband Steve, the cord was tightly wrapped around her neck making her hard to breathe.

The midwife immediately took Moon in her hands chanting ‘come on baby girl, come on baby girl’. All while Violet was starting to turn blue.

The doctor who was also present there started to twitch her legs. After doing this for a while, Moon’s body color started to change and she let out her first cry.

Why Did Steve & Sarah Name Their Daughter Violet?

The former partners reportedly went through a variety of different names before finalizing Moon as her middle name. As per themselves, Moon or Mahmonir is Shahi’s mother’s maiden name.

Howey shared,

“Moon is the English translation of Sarah’s mom’s name, We were going to name her Moon, but we decided that was better as a middle name. We liked Ruby and Olive — we liked colors for a girl — and then I came up with Violet.”

He also added that Knox’s moniker is ‘old timey’ and Wolf was because he wanted to go with an animal name.
