Missing a birth is my biggest fear and it’s something I put stringent measures in place to avoid. But given the unexpected nature of births and how quickly they can occur, sometimes it happens if baby is in an exceptionally big hurry or I’m notified late in all the commotion (communication is key!).
In the event this occurs however, there is always ample time to capture those first moments after birth, recovery time, skin-to-skin, first feeds, all the lovely meetings with siblings and family, and so many more beautiful moments.
I’d love to be able to provide guarantees but your obstetrician can’t do that, and neither can we – that’s just birth. I do only accept a handful of births every month and spread the due dates of my clients out throughout the month in order to keep the possibility of overlap exceptionally low. That may mean that I’m unable to accept you as a client if you’re coming late in your journey so booking early is highly recommended.
