Newborn | Twins Sophia & Gerhard
One baby is a miracle, but 2 is just a very special gift from God.
Meet little Sophia and her brother Gerhard. Sophia is the inquisitive one and very interested in everything I do. Gerhard on the other hand is totally relaxed, just chilling with his hand behind his head in most of the pictures 🙂
Natasha, I just have to share how powerful and generous our Creator is. These two were send from God with a special plan.
Natasha had a ectopic pregnancy (that’s when the baby grows inside the fallopian tube) and in the process lost one of her overies. This making it very difficult but not impossible to conceive. Trying for a while and nothing happening the next step was a fertility specialist. On the day of the appointment with the specialist Natasha hopped into the pharmacy and for some unknown reason bought a pregnancy test.
And you guessed it. Positive! A few weeks later they heard 2 heart beats!
No fertility treatment, no doctors and no twins in either families! Just the grace of God!
Natasha and Gerhard, enjoy your miracles. May you both and they always no the grace and love of God in this exciting journey called parenthood.

my LATEST WORK
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.
