Welcome to the world baby Maya!!!
Last Saturday was so special!! I drove down to Miami Maternity Center with excitement and a little nervous as always. I worry to get there on time, no traffic and with no problems. It’s always intense for me as I’m always intense with everything I do — but always staying positive. Praying for everything to go smooth and peaceful for everyone.
You may remember Vanessa from my previous post. She’s an incredible woman!! This was her forth natural birth at the Miami Maternity Center with Carol (midwife). She felt right at home and everything worked out perfectly fine. Her family was there and we all stayed with her all day as her labor progressed.
As night approached, things got more intense and more beautiful. Baby Maya was born at 8:32pm after 12 hours of labor. So worth it and so magical!
Me being pregnant myself made me even more emotional during the entire process. I had to really hold myself to not start sobbing when baby Maya was born. I did cry a little (how could I not?) but was able to control my tears so I could continue to photograph.
Seeing Maya’s brothers and sister meeting her for the first time was precious! It’s always one of my favorites moments of the whole day! Baby Maya is so loved already!!
Being a birth photographer is such a blessing and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to be part of such a miracle! I don’t get tired of saying that! I can’t wait to shoot my next birth next month and I can’t wait for my own. Actually, I’m being patient, present and enjoying my pregnancy so much. I don’t want to rush because I know I’m going to miss this belly and this tiny loved human moving inside of me. So I’m okay with waiting as long as I have to to see my little baby.
Vanessa wrote a beautiful blog post sharing her story. You can read it HERE.
Anyways, here are my favorites from Maya’s sacred Birth Story.
Congratulations to the whole Fernandez Family!!! God bless you all! You guys are amazing!!
Much love to you all :)
