Natural Twin Birth At Panorama Mediclinic {James & Alexander} | Cape Town Twin Birth Photographer

This is the story of one mom’s relentless fight to keep her twins in as long as possible. Hospitalized while her husband was overseas at his father’s funeral, she faced potentially delivering while he was gone and very-very premie babies. We quickly did her maternity shoot in hospital. (All my birth packages include a mini-maternity shoot at the location of your choice, this wasn’t really her choice but we made it happen as creativity as possible. The staff were incredible in helping)

Then I was on-call for the next 7.5 weeks as she lived there. Can you imagine? Every few days I marveled that she was still pregnant. Nothing short of a miracle. Through all of this, her hope was still for a vaginal birth if possible. Her doctor (Lourens) was incredibly supportive due to their ideal positioning. This birth story follows their until journey until they brought their boys home. I wasn’t allowed in NICU, so those photos are from the parents camera. I edited & incorporated them in for their story. It was one of the most incredible things I have seen in my career and personally so powerful to be a part of. BE sure to see their newborn session once you are done looking at this birth & homecoming.

All images shared with family permission and as always are work place/family friendly. The parents had this to say about their experience (left: Mother, right: Father) I hear this from lots of fathers!
