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….

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.
