Elizabeth Love {Fort Worth Birth Photography}

I have a long history of almost missing this mamas births!  With her 1st VBAC I hadn’t even made it out of Granbury when I received word that she was already pushing – and I had left my house after she had had only 1 contraction!  I made it with time to spare thanks to a longer pushing stage. With her 2nd VBAC I again left my house after only 1 contraction and walked in minutes before the birth.  This time I thought I was golden.  The family had moved quite a bit closer to me so I truly thought I would arrive in plenty of time and have an opportunity to take a few more labor pictures than I had been able to before.  I was so wrong.  I received a phone call on the morning of July 30 after 1 contraction, but unlike the previous births, this time she wasn’t sure that “this was really it.”  I went ahead and started driving just to be on the safe side.  Only minutes later the text came through that I had been dreading. “Hurry.”  When I arrived and walked into the bedroom you could already see a bit of little girls head.  Only 3 minutes later, she was born.  Labor had gotten faster, when I didn’t even think it was possible.  20 minutes, followed by the 30 minutes of pushing that saved me.

  birth products
Over the past 10 years I have been asked about everything from herbal baths to birth pools so I thought I would put together a list of some of the products you may have seen and wondered about.  I added a few of my favorite books also, including one for children that I bought for my own family when I was expecting my third child.  Check it out here.
