A beautiful peaceful birth story for these parents whose marriage is an inspiration. Notice how much affection this dad gives all three of his ladies. They didn’t know the gender until the birth, it was a great surprise moment that you really see on the video. We start out at grandma’s house as they drop of their daughter and wait for the right time to head to the hospital all the way to big sister meeting new baby.
Parker-Grace’s parents chose hypnobirthing techniques as taught by Beautifully Born for their birth preferences. Their midwife, Ciska Van Staten form the Birth Options Midwifery team was incredible. At one point you can see the delight in her eyes when she and mom are taking in Parker-Grace’s face. She was truly was in wonder of who this child was and not treating her like a job she does every day. That kind of care and attention is indescribable for a mother.
Parker-Grace’s parents hired me last minute before their due date. I normally book far in advance, but you never know, sometimes a mom delivers early or I have a open spot. So do contact me even if its last minute.
It was a record windy day in Cape Town for their mini-maternity shoot. But their daughter was such a delight and so cooperative none the less. I was in awe of this little girl. The crazy wind was worth the last images of them being just three. Mini-maternity sessions are offered complimentary with all my birth packages. Its 30 minutes, one location, one outfit and 15 gorgeous images for you to treasure long after you are done being pregnant.
When you are done, be sure to see their day-in-the-life session a few months later. Then head over to mom’s blog (The Milk Memoirs) which is a great resource for breastfeeding support and keeping it real motherhood. She even has helped us find great new kid-friendly spots in Cape Town. I am subscribed and love it.
Ok, now Enjoy their story… As always shared with total family permission.
