From the very beginning, I knew this birth was going to a much anticipated and exciting event for our family. But I never thought I’d be asked to photograph the event! So when I was, it was a moment of elation! Following the journey of first time mum, Kim through to the arrival of her gorgeous little daughter was a dream come true. But what was more amazing was how I witnessed one of the calmest and most focused drug free labours I could have imagined. The support was flowing freely, the energy was relaxed yet energised by the fast progress this calm labour facilitated. Once again, I believe this is another prime example of the way hypno-birthing can assist mothers during labour.
This storybook gallery has a few selectively conservative images of the birth of April. There are other shots, reserved for private viewing, that display the actual birth in an amazing way. Too amazing for words!
