You might notice while viewing this blog there isn’t a lot of um… storytelling… leading up to the action. This is because, usually, when first time moms are texting you about “hey I’m gonna go to the hospital and get checked out” type-texts, the next text, while you’re sitting there quietly editing late one night, is not from said mama’s husband stating “She’s at a 9!”
One recklessly fast drive across town and very few shutter clicks later, here we are!
Little buddy Vincent was struggling during labor… heart decelerations that were not recovering in an acceptable amount of time. It was pretty apparent he needed to get out, and fast. Some brief assistance by this wonderful OB and he arrived with a nuchal cord that had caused him some pretty serious distress. Nuchal cords are common of course, but this one was not messing around. You’ll notice in the images that there are lots of nurses standing by – I watched as staff tried everything to change Becki’s position and give V more time to make his way down, but it just wasn’t happening. So, out he came, but he needed some help in the NICU before visiting mama.
So much love for this little family <3
