Owen’s Birth Story Part 2 | Exeter Hospital C-Section Birth

Owen’s Birth Story Part 2 | Exeter Hospital C-Section Birth

Austin & Jimmy were so excited to welcome Baby Owen into the world in early March 2020 via a repeat scheduled c-section. Her 9am appointment got bumped to noon and then to 2pm and finally after what seemed like DAYS, Austin was wheeled into the OR at 3:30pm. Hungry, excited and a little nervous, she had the best staff who was joking about “getting dolled up” for the photographer (ME) and they were excited to see the images of them hard at work.
Everything went amazing until baby Owen took a gulp of fluid and needed a little oxygen. He was immediately brought over to be looked at by the on call pediatrician and taken moments later to the nursery for observation. Everything turned out great and Owen is just fine but my heart ached for this mama who was unable to even see her baby until the next morning.
The nurses and doctors at Exeter Hospital were AMAZING and gave access for me to capture so many “firsts” that she may otherwise have missed – big brother meeting his new best buddy, Owens first cries and everyone in the waiting room who was holding space. (This was all pre-pandemic of course).
After many tries to get out of bed to be wheeled in to meet her baby we knew it was not going to happen that night so with the help of a little technology (FaceTime), Austin was finally able to see baby Owen.
The next day, we captured their reunion and one of his very first feedings. It was magical! Birth is birth no matter what and we can’t always plan for the outcomes. In this case, mom & dad were so grateful for a happy and healthy baby and I was happy I could help to fill in some of the rest.

Fresh 48 Photography | Logan’s Birth Story Part 2

After a cesarean birth, moms are wiped out from all of the medication, major surgery and lets be honest – THEY JUST HAD A BABY! As a birth photographer, I want my mamas to have the best memories of their birth and sometimes that means that I have to come back the next day to do those bonding photos in the hospital. If I am being honest, Fresh 48 Newborn Sessions are my FAVORITE so I just love coming back to capture these beautiful postpartum moments for mama.

Just 48 hours after Logan’s Birth, I headed back to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Nashua to photograph mama loving on her baby and I am so glad that I did because we got GOLD. Mom was getting around much better and enjoying every minute with her little man. Daddy & Grandma were there too and were the best support system for this new mama who had just had major surgery. #ItTakesAVillage

When I walked in the room, I immediately thought he looked bigger. Babies change so quickly! He had already changed and was just 2 days old. Those tiny toes, spiked hair and sweet grins are the most precious moments and I know this mama will treasure them forever.
