“Hello, I’m interested in your Birth Photography.” Tania says calmly over the phone. “Great,” I replied and we continued to talk about it for a couple minutes.
“When are you due?”
“Umm I’m actually in labour now…”
*Jaw drops* I grabbed my cameras, did a little nervous wee and out the door! I arrived at the hospital at the same time as Adam and Tania, thankfully, as I’d never met them but was just looking for a labouring mother!
Tania was AMAZING! Calm and collected the whole time. As we walked into her room, she lay on the bed and had a few more intense contractions… 12 minutes later she was holding her little sweetness! Perfection.
Many of my friends are yet to go through the birthing experience, and are understandably anxious about that time coming. This is the birth story I wish they could have seen! So natural, so smooth and so incredible.
I’ll say it again..
Birth IS beautiful!
Thank you Tania, Adam and Cate for allowing me to be a part of such an intimate moment in your lives. I will never forget it.
