A PERSONAL PROJECT

This is my favorite personal project, and I have a suspicion that it will always be my favorite! My family. This is a collection of some of the images I love most of my family, some were taken by other photographers, some by me, some with excelent camera equipment and some by cellphone. In the end I don’t really care how they were taken, as these are some of my favorite moments and I am eternally grateful that I have something tangible as my memories start to fade.

The next hour was the hardest for me, it felt like torture. It had gotten dark and we lit candles around the bath. I was trying all different positions, but struggled to find something bearable. I had worked so hard on breathing and relaxing, but when the contractions came it was so crushing, all I could do was ride it out and wait for it to be over.

An emergency C-section is exactly what it says – an emergency measure. You will have to discuss any risk factors that you have for that happening with your gynaecologist. Common reasons are obstructed labour, failure of labour to progress, placenta praevia (development of the placenta in an abnormally low position near the cervix), foetal distress, gestational diabetes mellitus, and improper positioning of the foetus for delivery.
