Maternity | Gerhard & Anecia
“I grow humans, what’s your superpower?”- Unknown
Anecia sure have superpowers if you look at that tiny belly. Now imagine this. There is 2 babies in there and she is already 36 weeks pregnant! I kid you not! TWINS at 36 Weeks! Superpowers I tell you!
Gerhard and Anecia just fit! Perfectly in sync with each other and with an incredibly view of life, going with the motions and enjoying every single minute! Trusting every moment of their lives in the hands of their Creator! It was so inspiring to see how even when things felt a little uncertain, it was all still perfectly in control!
Anecia and Gerhard, I am so glad I met you guys! You are so inspiring to me! You are going to be great parents to those 2 beautiful flowers.
(O by the way, their 2 gorgeous little girls were born 48 hours after this session! How perfect were the timing, hey?)

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.
