VBA2C: Deployed Husband Listens and Supports Over the Phone

VBA2C: Deployed Husband Listens and Supports Over the Phone

This is a story of love, courage, and service. Birth and newborn photos by Christy Pellicer, of Doulananda and Bliss Photography.

Mama writes, “Here is one of my all-time favorite pictures ever: me right after my hard-earned VBA2C, holding our precious baby boy. It was an unmedicated birth at a Naval hospital – my poor husband (active duty Navy) was on the phone, floating out in the Persian Gulf somewhere, the entire time I was pushing.
