Yesterday in the wee hours of the morning I had the pleasure of photographing the incredible birth of baby Jacob.
His mommy Melissa was attempting a VBAC delivery (vaginal birth after c-section) and it was looking for a while like it was going to end in a repeat cesarean due to many hours of not progressing past 4cm, putting the risk for uterine rupture higher. However, just when it got down to the wire, things started progressing well – and little Jacob made it into the world without surgical intervention! So proud of Melissa who was a champ, her Mom and her husband Omar who supported her all the way. Special thanks to the family of Melissa and Omar who accepted me into their family for the long haul!
So, without further ado, allow me to present to you the story of Baby Jacob – born on Independence Day and from what I understand he is quite the little firecracker
Since the little man was born in Independence Day, I thought it appropriate to include some photos of the fireworks show from the day he was born.
