What we learn – Boynton Beach Birth Photographer
It’s sometimes a surprise to new parents how much we learn about ourselves when children arrive. Many of those lessons emerge before the baby arrives.
Patience comes to mind as one of the most important things children teach us. In the case of Brent and Vanessa, that lesson came on full force when their due date came and went… and went…. all the way to 42 weeks.
Our children also teach us about being flexible and open-minded and focusing on the big picture. Brent and Vanessa had planned on delivering Matilda in a birth center, but they ended up in a hospital. They hoped for a vaginal delivery, but some erratic heart rhythms of their baby meant a c-section was a safer option in the end. Throughout Vanessa’s long labor, they had the support and compassion of Kris, their doula and longtime friend.
I think you’ll see through these images that these two have the best qualities they will need to make them successful parents – a sense of humor. Reverence. Endurance. Patience. Love.
