Healthy C-Section Birth After 3 Miscarriages
Photographer: Rebecca Edmonson
Brief Description of Birth: Written by Sara (birth mom):
What thoughts or feelings have come up during this pregnancy? Chris is a lot more relaxed that everything will be fine. I am more cautious. After 3 miscarriages, I am just trying to take it one day at a time and hope for the best. It's in God's hands, not mine, but I can't help but guard my heart after the journey that we were on.
What are you most looking forward to about the arrival of your new baby? Oh my goodness, I haven't even let myself think about this. Just reading it made me tear up thinking that this really may finally happen for us! I just want to hold him and know that he is ok. I want to see Chris's face when he is born as well as the look on his face when he holds him for the first time. That is a memory that I can't wait to have.
STORY: After six long years of struggling to have a baby, we knew we wanted to remember every special moment of that day. I had heard that birth rarely goes the way you think it will and due to complications, I not only needed a c-section, but I was also sedated during the birth that I had so longed to experience naturally. I woke up with no recollection of anything but going into the operating room and feeling pain as my epidural for the c-section failed. I will be forever grateful to Rebecca for documenting a moment that I would’ve given just about anything to be conscious for. Thanks to her wonderful pictures and videos, I was able to see the birth of my son as well as hear his first cries. That is something that I will be truly grateful for forever!
