Ailish’s Birth {Mt Vernon Birth Photographer}

posted in: Birth | 1

I photographed the birth of Pamela’s first daughter, back in 2015. I love it when repeat clients call and book another birth. Not only is re-hiring me an incredible honor but I love getting to know the families better.

Pamela’s first birth was long. Like all day and push for five hours long. Her baby was posterior and it was a massive task to push her out. She dilated quickly the first time around I had a feeling her second birth would go fast.Mt Vernon Birth Photographer, Renee Bergeron, captures Alilish's beautiful birth center birth.

Pamela did a great job of keeping me posted on her progress. The night before her baby’s birth she called me at midnight to let me know her water had broken. I love it when I have a bit of advanced notice, especially in this case since Pamela was giving birth at a birth center 45 minutes from my home.

I hopped out of bed, double checked my bag, and fell asleep expecting to be awakened at any moment. Just before six am Pamela called again, this time to let me know contractions had started. At 7:30 am I got the this is it call and I headed out immediately.

Pamela was obviously in active labor when I arrived. She was focused 100% on her labor experience.

Sweet little Ailish was born thirty minutes after I arrived. She needed a little bit of help to get breathing but soon pinked up and cried.

Once Ailish was settled in, Konrad left to pick up his older daughter.

As it turns out, little Ailish wasn’t so little. Nine-and-a-half pounds. Wow!

Dita’s Birth

posted in: Birth | 1

Pamela’s labor started two weeks before her due date. In fact, I went to bed that night thinking the first thing I needed to do in the morning was send her an email reminding her when and how to get ahold of me, to keep me updated, etc. Instead, I was awakened in the night with the news that Pamela was already in labor!

I packed my bag and headed out in the early hours to the Mt. Vernon Birth Center. I was excited because this was my very first birth at this particular birth center. Pamela’s labor was moving at a steady pace and we all thought it would be a quick labor.

Pamela was amazingly strong! She pushed (by my calculations) for over 5 hours! I could not believe the strength and determination this woman has.
