Born just on time — Delray Beach birth photographer

Everything was meticulously prepared for a lovely home birth. So when the due date came and went, then went some more, and then more, suddenly the best laid plans seemed to be shifting. Gina and Todd’s hope for delivering their baby girl at home dissipated. On the edge of 42 weeks, logistics went from planning for a birth tub, to what time to check into the hospital in the morning. It would be an induction and they would arrive at 5:30 a.m.

A suitcase was packed and careful notes were left about how to take care of “big brother” Pops.

But as children seem to do, Samantha surprised everyone. Gina’s water broke before 11 p.m.  the night before they’d head to the hospital, and suddenly, home birth was Game On.

Gina labored like a trooper all night long. About 5:47, just about 15 minutes after they were due to arrive at the hospital, Samantha made her debut at home, in the family bed, surrounded by warm light and support, like she’d planned it all along.

Enjoy this lovely birth story. ❤
