Birth | Olivia
Charl & Bernadette welcomed their little bundle on a grey afternoon, which was actually very strange for this time of year. Little Olivia was greeted by a waiting room packed with family that were waiting anxiously to meet her. Their first glimpse of this little princess were on a cell phone, as you will see in some of the images, and that’s just the way it goes in our technology driven world. Her new grandfather actually made a comment about how things have changes since they have had Bernadette and her twin brothers. Never the less the meeting of her new family was as special as I have seen. Ouma were in tears as Oupa was the very first one to hold her, after mom and dad.
Guys as you mentioned, let her sleep, this little one will have no problem moving those mountains with this family’s love, surrounding her, cherishing her and teaching her.

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.
