I was privileged to be asked to do another birth photography session. It was something that I knew I wanted to do but as a wife and mother of two young children it was something that I knew would cause me some stress in the planning of what to do with my children. So I planned for the "just in case" scenarios, prayed for the baby to be born on a weekend, and hoped that everyone would be healthy.
Thankfully L. went into labor on a Friday night (hours after her husband got home from a business trip) and I was able to once again make the drive to the hospital to be there for the labor and delivery.
I was amazed at how easy L. made this labor look. She used a TENS machine and hypnobirth and for L. at least, these things worked really well. It was amazing to watch and the skin to skin at the end was beautiful. She had incredible support from her husband and the two midwives and I am so blessed that I was there to capture this amazing event. Thank you L. and J. for this privilege and I look forward to the newborn session with baby S..
Melinda loves photography and hopes this love comes out through her work.
