Life can be so unpredictable, this is especially so in the nature of birth. We can make a plan, read a book, think it all through, but we don't really decide any of it. We can choose our caregiver, where we hope to birth, all of the little details. But that doesn't mean it will happen just that way. This is not a bad thing, or a scary thing......it is just a true thing. Luckily, it's not left up to us to decide for a reason, nature knows, it knows exactly how it shall happen. It will happen the way it's supposed to.
When this lovely couple and I headed to the beach for their maternity session, we thought it would be a few weeks until baby arrived. It was looking like they would be back home in Manitoba and be able to birth their baby here at Boundry Trails Health Centre and I planned to be there to document her arrival. But again, life is unpredictable. While back in Alberta, during a routine ultrasound, it was discovered that their baby had a varix in her umbilical cord. After seeing a specialist, they determined the best course of action would be to deliver early. Momma was induced and safely delivered her tiny princess. I may have missed the birth, but as soon as they were back in Manitoba, I got to snuggle her, and it was GLORIOUS. Please, enjoy some fresh baby sweetness......
You guys were so relaxed!! Such a joy to be around and she's so lucky to have you. Congratulations <3 (Disclaimer: Dad may have been pooped on during this session)
