Natural Birth at Panorama Medi-Clinic {Baby Hofmeyr} | Cape Town Birth Photography

The Hofmeyrs have such a special place in my heart. Their journey to parenthood was not easy, with heartbreak along the way, so to capture their miracle baby was my absolute honor. You might remember their maternity shoot and be sure to check out their newborn photos.

They planned a peaceful, medication free, all natural birth employing the techniques of Hypnobirthing. Nicolette Hadden of Beautifully Born was their doula and helped them achieve their dream birth. Their doctor respected their wishes and it was a great team all on their side. The plan was for me to join them at home first, but by the time they called me they were headed to the hospital already. Things progressed quickly. I shot out of bed in the 6 am hour like a rocket, thankful our kids were all still fast asleep. Time was of the essence and I didn’t even brush my teeth. I am based in the Southern Suburbs and they are birthing in the Northern Suburbs. Traffic always makes me very nervous when covering Northern Suburbs births. I knew I had to get on the road to beat the morning rush. I flew there. Only a few minutes after walking in the room, she was completely dilated!

This birth was unique in that the father helped deliver his child and announced the gender. It was a girl! What a beautiful series of moments to witness them become parents. Theirs was a truly beautiful birth.

The story will continue as I am soon going to photograph their daughter’s christening. Thank you to the Hofmeyrs for inviting me to witness and capture some of the most beautiful weeks of your lives. And welcome to the world little one, you are so loved!

As with all my births, shared with complete family permission. I always let my clients approve what images of their births are shared and how they want their child named online. Enjoy!
