Adventures of a Colorado Springs Birth Photographer |Family Centered Cesarean Birth
I LOVE this family so much!! It was humbling when they asked me to be their colorado springs birth photographer for the birth of their new sweet girl. The Springers were some of my very first clients when I first moved to Colorado Springs. I had the privilege of photographing their first daughter in the hospital 2 years ago. So watching this family grow and expand with the birth of their newest baby was such an honor!
Jaymie and Matt choose to deliver at Memorial North Birth Center, due to their policies that allow for a more family centered birth. The whole staff was amazing, and Dr. York deserves a special shout out, for being so caring and open to the families wishes. I found myself being extremely impressed with the level of care he offered to them!
Being in the OR to capture this birth was amazing! Again Dr. York gets the credit for making this happen for the Springer family. Colorado Springs is defiantly a birth friendly community, but being open to having your photographer in the room during a Cesarean birth, is a whole new level of awesome! One the rest of the US should aspire to ;).
Being able to record these firsts is something every mama should have access to. Many women go to great lengths to record the day they became a wife, shouldn’t we do the same for the day you become a mother?? Birth photography really is all about capturing the love and emotion of that very special day. Birth is beautiful!! Record your story, I promise you wont regret it.
So cool watching the way the staff at Memorial catered to this families desire to have a gentle cesarean birth. They were able to have immediate skin to skin contact, among a host of other accommodations. And little Miss Vivi was so calm! No doubt from the close proximity of her parents, and the reassurance of being right back with mama almost immediately. Such an honor to witness her amazing birth!
If you are in the Colorado Springs area, and interested in recording your own birth story, or capturing those first 48 hours of your new babies life, please don’t hesitate to contact me! It would be my honor to be a part of telling your birth story. Some things are worth recording.
