When this mom contacted me one month before she was due hoping that I was available to document her third child being born, I was so happy to be able to tell her I was available due to a change in my schedule! She met me with her husband and their two children to discuss the details and expectations and I immediately loved their family. The husband clearly adores his wife and they were just so darn cute in telling me all of their plans for welcoming baby #3!
When the time came, I met them at the birth center and entered the quietest labor room I’ve ever been in. Mom was practicing her hypnobirthing and was doing a phenomenal job focusing and working through her labor. Dad was so supportive and would have jumped through hoops if asked! Their 10 year old daughter was there too and her reaction once her baby sister was born is something I’ll never forget. She was so overcome with emotion that dad had to take some time to hold her while she worked through those big feelings!
It was a fantastic birth story and as always, I am beyond thrilled that I was not only given the opportunity to document the moments for them but also thankful that they are allowing their birth story to be shared!
