The Birth of Victoria - a Birth Story by Hannah Palamara Birth Photographer
Maria & Sergio became very special clients and friends to me during our time together. I was supporting them both as their Doula and Photographer and every time I came to their home I felt so welcome and loved. I always laugh as for our initial meeting/interview they invited me to a bar-b-q they were having with friends that day. I knew straight away they were going to be the perfect clients for me.
Maria was planning a home birth but due to a serious blood pressure complication we transferred into hospital during her labour. She was able to labour at home on and off for two days before we went in and her birth, although not how she planned, was still beautiful and powerful and Maria was strong and courageous despite the different plan.
