Birth | Baby Aliyah Cristina Mansinho

“Whenever there is happiness, Hope you’ll be there too, Wherever there are friendly smiles, Hope they’ll smile on you, Whenever there is sunshine, Hope it shine especially for you to make each day, for you as bright as it can be…” – Unknown

Meet little Aliyah, what a beautiful name, almost as beautiful as the little one carrying it. She was born on a warm winters morning in July. Her family waited in anticipation for this little one’s arrival and I have never seen such a packed “Father’s Lounge”. Celebrating her arrival with campaign, lots of laughter, hugs and cuddles.  My guess is she will be forever “packed” with love and surrounded by family and loved ones.

Why was I so desperate to have a natural birth?
Yes, it would have been a most empowering experience for me and yes my next one will be a VBAC, but was it really that important in the bigger scheme of things? At the end of it all we got what we set out to achieve – a human being that we could guide and mould and set free into the world for her to make her own impact. Maybe that trauma she and I both endured in getting her Earthside happened exactly how it was supposed to. That’s birth and even more so parenting – you set off on a course with big plans and that’s great, but there has to be flexibility and acceptance in changing course depending on whatever life (or your kid) throws at you.

After a minute or so we heard your first loud cry. It was glorious and we could finally breathe. Sr Lotter brought you to us and our hearts melted, my boy. You were beautiful. We checked for 10 fingers and 10 toes and we couldn’t stop looking at you. The happiest moment of our lives. You were born at 11:33 weighing 3.49kg and measuring 53cm.
