The Birth Of Wilfred

AP3A7068The birth of Wilfred was long awaited. For a mother who had been vomiting for 41 weeks it was more awaited than most. It was ironic then, that after all the waiting, he arrived so suddenly that I would have missed it had it not been for the intuition of a wise midwife who knew to call me after only 20 minutes of labour.
Jasmin was the picture of an empowered woman, labouring on her own terms to bring her 4.25kg boy Earthside. She was strong and determined and stunningly beautiful, but it was the way she kissed her child with such a fierce and immediate love that truly took my breath away.
Peter brought to the room his humour and relaxed nature and Ash brought her beautifully gentle midwifery care. And afterwards, Henry and Sadie brought the laughter.
Eternal thanks Shumack family for gifting me such a day. XO
