I thought I'd share a personal story to start off Baby Mondays. After having 2 previous children I felt like an old pro and it was at this time I set on a quest to make this delivery different, being a photojournalist I'd seen it all, well almost all, my camera had never captured a birth from the Mom's perspective but it was more than that it was about bridging my life and career about having that connection of being both a "Mommy" and a working photographer. Now you might need to have a cool doctor like Dr. S to have it be okay with the them and I'm not going to write a long post about the pains of labor since mine are all under 3hours long, the photo was taken by my husband who too is a photojournalist so cameras in hand we went in to meet son. This was a once in a lifetime event for me, Aidan is our only son and the next delivery I chose 100% natural birth and discovered the true meaning of "blinding pain" take my word , it's real.
the moment of awakening
first breath of life
Notice the halo around Dr.S, Thank you for 3 wonderful and safe deliveries and Dr.V for the other.
Where did you come from, baby dear?
