“Whatever way birth happens, it is your rite of passage into motherhood, and that passage is to be celebrated. Natural childbirth is a passage, cesarean birth is a passage, and birth with an epidural is a passage to be celebrated. That passage cannot be taken away from you. Every mother’s birth experience is valid, and an act of courage.”
I was very lucky to book this sweet couple to document the birth of their first child. It was a scheduled c-section and the ob-gyn just happened to be my ob-gyn! He let me get scrubbed in and I was allowed back there for the entire delivery! It was so amazing. I’ll let the photos tell this story.
