This was my very first birthing session that I have longed to experience! I can say that this is an area that I hope I get to experience several times in my lifetime. It's so amazing to witness a mom giving life to a beautiful baby girl! Baby Sadie Grace arrived at 7:44pm weighing in a 6lbs 11.8 oz, Mom was amazing and delivered her gracefully! I can not express how beautiful this experience was for not only the family but for me as the photographer/sister cousin! Sadie Grace is a picture of perfection, with her mom's beautiful eyes and dad's long lashes! Seconds after birth she heard her dad's voice and was calm, there is an amazing connection already, she knows who her daddy is! Valerie and Ramiro, you have a babysitter for life!
It was the day of induction and I met Val and Ramiro at their house before they left for the hospital. Mom and dad were ready to go as they received a call from the hospital letting them know there was a bed available for them. So off we all went!
One last picture of Valerie's pregnancy! She is one beautiful mom to be!
Around 11am Valerie and Ramiro arrive to check in..
It was time to go to the delivery room! A room we would be in for a good 7 hours as the progress of delivery commenced.
Labor and contractions began before induction medication was started.
Medication was introduced around noon to get things moving along...
Pushing commenced for all of 20 minutes at the most! Within a couple of hours full dialation occured and she was SO ready to see her beautiful baby girl!
