Birth & First Smiles

Baby smiles are the best! Just one of the small joys of motherhood.

This little one, just 3 days old, surprised her family with a beautiful smile.


Her birth was peaceful, her mother composed and focused for a successful VBAC! Once baby was in the optimal position for birth, labor ticked along just as well as it could and mother dilated from 3 cm to birth in just 3 hours and 20 mins.


While this is not normal according to text books, it’s also not unusual. This mother was relaxed and calm and confidently trusted her body to birth her baby naturally.



Another peaceful birth. Another peaceful baby.
