  • From being pregnant to the moment where you are holding your baby…..there’s a lot that takes place. So how do you get there? How do you prepare for this big moment we call parenthood? How do you enter into parenthood feeling ready and confident? Well, I’ll be honest I’m not sure anyone feels 100% confident or ready especially when it is your first baby but there are tools along the way we can draw on to help prepare us and support us in our journey. This week we have been chatting all about baby basics and how to better prepare for parenthood. Here’s a list of some of the things we have been talking about in helping prepare for parenthood:
1. Taking a good prenatal class: knowledge is wisdom! Understanding your body and the changes that take place will better help you understand your needs and desires during the birth of your baby and postpartum
2. Find a support system: Don’t try to do it alone. Whether that support is in the form of family, a mother, sister, aunt, cousin, or whether you hire a Doula, support is a huge part of preparing and thriving for both you and your baby.
3. Rest: Sleep can be hard to come by in the last trimester so find rest whenever you can. Take naps, put your feet up. Go on a baby moon before baby arrives and spend time reconnecting with your partner.
4. Prepare a space: Prepare your home for baby. Have fun creating a space for baby. It doesn’t have to be elaborate and fancy. Just something that gets you feeling like you have a space for baby. 
5. Prepare for postpartum: Make time for healing. The postpartum period is such a special time of healing and bonding with your baby. Prepare in a way that frees up your time for healing and bonding with baby. Make meals ahead of time that you can defrost and pop in the oven. Have a family member help with laundry and light tidying. If possible, have your partner prepare and take some time off work to be with you and baby. 
5. Find a hobby: Take time for you. Find something that is simple yet refreshing that you can do with baby around. Maybe is knitting or crocheting, painting, scrapbooking, reading a book, exercise. Find something that makes you feel like you.

  • The moment you hold your baby in your arms for the first time is like no other. Everything around you stops. Time stands still in that moment as you embrace your new baby. “My baby! My baby is here! I can’t believe she’s here!” #firstembrace #firstglance #firstmomentswithbaby #timestandsstill #firstmoments #mybabyishere #birth #birthbecomesher #canadianbirthphotographers #birthphotography #momentsilivefor #birthphotographer #niagarabirthphotographer #hamiltonbirthphotographer #burlingtonbirthphotographer #trulovebirthphotography

  • There is something so special about the togetherness that happens during a birth. One of my favourite moments to capture during a birth is the way labour brings couples and family together. During this mama’s birth her husband never left her side, reminding her to breathe through her contractions, helping apply pressure to her lower back, giving her a hand to hold whenever needed. He was her strength when she felt weak and her rock every step of the way.

  • One of my favourite parts of the labour journey is being able to support my clients and family as they journey closer to meeting their baby. As a Doula I get to labour with my clients, supporting them and their birth partner along the way. As a birth photographer I get to witness and capture how this incredible journey brings couples closer as they go through labour together.

  • Sometimes laughter is the best medicine for our pain. This mama’s labour was filled with laughter, funny faces, attempts at dancing and jokes all around! Even through her contractions her and her hubby were cracking jokes. This doesn’t mean her labour was any easier on her. And boy did this mama work hard to bring her little one earth side. But it did make for one memorable funny night! This mama made her labour journey her own and my goodness was it so incredibly special to be apart of. This was my second time being able to photograph this mama’s birth story and I was over joyed and honoured to be able to capture all of these fun memories for her for the birth of her third baby!

  • Each labouring mama will go through their own journey into parenthood. Their journey to meet their baby. And each journey is different. Some journey’s are calm and quiet while others may feel loud and chaotic. Some are serious and some are filled with laughter. The birth I was most recently apart of was filled with laughter and excited, even in the wee hours of the night when we were counting down the hours until the coffee shop opened! Laughter can be a great way to journey through labour!
