The Caesarean Birth of Evie

Sometimes, birth doesn’t go as we planned it. As we imagined it. As we hoped with all our hearts it would.

Sometimes we need to dig very deep in our souls to accept that we cannot always control how things unfold, despite all of the preparation we undertook to get there.

This beautiful family has gone on such a journey. Lisa and Peter were doula clients of mine, planning on a natural birth for their first baby. But after 3 nights of labouring like a goddess, Lisa’s babe wasn’t budging. The decision was made to go to theatre. It was not made lightly.

However, this glorious woman refused to lose her sense of humour… that theatre was filled with joy and laughter, and thus, theirĀ  daughter was born into a room of warmth and love.

It is possible this babe was waiting to share her birthday with her mama… which she now does. Together, they celebrated with a glass of very well earned French fizz.

Birth is an overwhelmingly spectacular event, however it happens.

I introduce to you… Evie.

    What a fabulous set of pictures showing not only the journey but capturing the spirit and joy of the moment. How lucky to privilege such a private moment and then expertly capture it with such clarity for the parents and the child in years to come.

    What a beautiful message for Evie and Lisa, and a spectacular set of pictures. We cannot control how our little angels will come into this world. What matters is that they make it here safe and sound. Well done, Lisa and Evie. Way to hang in there, Peter! You look great in blue scrubs :) And thank you Jerusha for honoring my dear friends and supporting them through their beautiful birth.

    I knew Lisa as a kid – and haven’t seen her for years. What a joy it is to somehow be a witness to Lisa and her husband becoming parents. What gorgeous photos that are part of little Evie’s journey into this world.
    Congratulations to the entire family.
    Much love
    Belinda Fabry
