Birth is an incredibly beautiful thing. It is so beautiful and unique that I want to share every beautiful detail, that I witness, with you! In reality, Birth is intimate. It is private. It is sacred. Every Mom and Dad are different, and have their own wishes. Some wish to share with the world and others just don’t. I have permission to share with you some images from a Birth I did a few months ago. So in honoring my clients privacy, I have purposefully omitted their names.
Baby Audrey had an interesting Birth Day. Mom went in to natural labour and was prepared for a natural delivery. Dad phoned me around 9pm, and I arrived at the hospital around 10pm. Mom was in intense labour. I doubt she even remembers my arrival.
She laboured until midnight. The midwife then noticed that Baby Audrey had turned. She had somehow turned into a position that was unfavourable for a natural delivery. There were options though. Options where Mom could endure a stronger and longer labour to try get Baby to turn. In the end, though, Mom had endured enough and agreed to a Cesarean section.
Baby Audrey was Born safely at 1h13, on the 5th of August 2014 weighing a beautiful 3.25kg.
I remember the awe. Mom and Dad were so incredibly proud.
I met with the new little family a few days after the Birth, at their home, for a small family session.
I thank you, Mom and Dad, for inviting me to bear witness to such an incredible day. May you be blessed.
