Has there ever been a time in your life where you knew you were right where God wanted you to be? Right in the middle of His aww and wonder and you were taken back by the amazement of what He had in store for you? Well that is exactly what I felt the entire time I was capturing this home birth! There are no words to express just how blessed I fell to have been a part of this amazing morning!
Let me start at the beginning. I just had my twerp 4 days before and (to keep it G rated) was still in an enormous amount of pain due to the “work” I had done. I apparently thought I was supermom and let my pain meds wear off which left me in a state of utter shock at the amount of pain that I actually felt. No joke from 10pm to 4:30am I was out of commission. Seriously couldn’t move without crying, it was absolutely terrible! My pain was finally manageable around 5am.
Meanwhile, my client was due the day I delivered and was now 4 days past her due date. And yes I prayed with everything in me that she would be late to give me a few days to recover and make the delivery.
5:17am I get the phone call from her to let me know this is it and that she had been laboring all night. WOW, talk about perfect timing for sure! I throw clothes on and get there as fast as I can to document one of the most amazing experiences I have ever been a part of. Being her 4th delivery, things went very fast and, even though she told me different, she looked so in control and peaceful. I’ll let the images take it from here…
Thank you Jesus and "S" family for letting me be a part of your amazing morning!
