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.
My doula said I pushed for almost three hours – I can’t remember – it’s all a blur!
My doula took this photo from my phone so I could email it to my husband…
After the birth, six more long weeks went by before he was finally able to hold our beautiful baby boy in his arms.”
