This birth story was a little crazy. It was highly anticipated considering mom was well overdue. We expected it since her first child went 2 weeks overdue…. and still labored for 30 hours. This baby (a surprise gender) was 4 days overdue when he finally decided to make his way out. And when he did he didn’t mess around. When mom checked into the hospital she was fully dilated! They called me immediately and I ran (literally) out the door. I had a 40 minute drive and was so panicked that I wouldn’t make it. I got word that she was about to start pushing and I still had a good 15 minutes to go before I arrived. I ran into the hospital, got my pass, and took off down the hall. I hollered for the guy to hold the elevator and guessed my camera settings on the ride up to the 4th floor. They buzzed me in and said, “I think they she just delivered”. When I walked in the door the first picture below is what I saw….. and thankfully captured. Baby came out so fast and had to be checked out so there wasn’t any mom/baby bonding time. I waited around hoping baby would come back to the room and after almost 2 hours he did. So glad that I waited because it was like mom was seeing her baby for the first time.
I just love documenting births. There is nothing like it. There are so many moments that parents forget and now these parents have those moments frozen in time forever. Thank you guys for letting me be a part of such a special time in your lives.
Dad had gone with the baby and was so worried about his wife. He was texting the sweetest things <3
This is an all time favorite. Two mommas loving their babies.
