“These photos of my dear friends water VBAC in April this year. I am a birth doula but when Helen asked me to support on her journey towards her planned VBAC, it was the first time I would be doula for a close friend. Nothing could prepare me for the emotion I felt …I’m so glad I picked up my camera at just the moment that I did because I never tire of soaking up the raw emotion in these pictures. Seeing her bring baby Ollie to the surface while her amazing partner Craig had his first experience of a vaginal birth will stay with me for the rest of my life. We cried. Tears of pure joy. I’m still in awe of her.”
Just love Daddy’s face…
Welcome to the world Ollie. He weighed 9 lbs 6 oz.
A supported, hospital water VBAC! What a high and the smile shows it!
