Earlier this month I documented a scheduled c-section birth of a beautiful little boy. The birth had some complications and caused Mom to be in the operating room for an extended period of time.
Even so, Mom’s nurses did a great job helping her to have a gentle c-section birth experience. She had a clear drape so she could watch as her baby took his first breaths. The nurse took him over to the warmer for only a minute or two and brought him right back over to Mom so she could have skin-to-skin. Then they did something I had heard about but never seen before- her nurse helped her to breastfeed while still on the operating table!
Mom and baby are both doing great now and I had the privilege of photographing Baby’s Fresh 48 session!
