We went to our 40-week appointment and were excited about this baby’s impending arrival. After spending the previous weekend walking, eating spicy food and doing any other old wives tales that were reasonable to get labor going, we were looking forward to finding out if any progress had been made. We were totally shocked to find out that our baby boy had turned breech! We had spent months anticipating and hoping for a birth similar to Norah’s, which was darn near perfect in my eyes. So after an attempted, yet failed version, we were prepped for a c-section and Myles was born about an hour later. It was a completely different experience, but still amazing, as the result was this beautiful, healthy little baby boy. The journey might have been different, but the outcome was perfect.
We were prepared to document this birth, but hadn’t planned for a c-section. We asked our doctor about bringing a camera and after receiving her approval, our 5D Mark III went right along with us. Andrew did an amazing job of documenting what he could, taking care of me and also trying to be present himself.
Here’s a little bit of our birth experience and of our newborn session with Myles. We tried to include what we could without making anyone squeamish. See the quick video for more! Find us on facebook here.
