Scared. Worried. Nervous. Excited. These are all the emotions I remember feeling when I realized I "this was it!" I remember thinking to myself "at the end of this day, I will be holding my baby in my arms." Although my 14 hours of labor seemed to last a life time, now when I look back, I they are but a mere mist in time.
I regret not indulging more in holding my little one in my arms right after birth. I regret being too nervous about being a mom. I regret not buying another Kodak disposable camera, to take more photos. The time just passed so fast!
Today, my son is 12 years old. And although I have tons and tons of photos of him now, I don't have nearly enough of the he was born.
That is my motivation when I'm in the delivery room with my clients. I try to put myself in their shoes. I try to capture every emotion on Mom and Dad's face. Every glance and interaction between them.
I also remember that being scared, worried, nervous, and excited are all the emotions that I wish I could have captured, and I strive to do that very same thing for my clients every time.
Here is one such recent Birth Story.
