Newborn | Baby Nelia Part 1

“First we had each other, then we had you, now we have EVERYTHING” – Unknown

Little Miss Nelia surprised her mommy and daddy with a week or two. She was a sleeping beauty when I met her and I totally fell in love with this fair haired princess. At first she was very inquisitive but soon fell pray to her sleepiness and ‘slept like a baby’ the entire session.

We’ve got another session planned this week and I can not wait to meet up again with this sleeping beauty and her gorgeous mama….

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.
