Birth | Zayden
If there is one truth about birth it’s that the plan can change and that’s okay……
Labour was induced early morning and everything progressed so well! Tharien fully dilated but baby changed position and it ended in a emergency C-section. Mom and baby was doing fine but the birth plan has changed. A lot of times this is really traumatic for a new mom but not for Tharien. Birth made her a mother, “…..strong, competent, capable mother who trust themselves and know their inner strength…..”
Thanks for asking me to be a witness to your beautiful journey.

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.
