ABIGAIL MAJA

This sweet little girl started her first moves towards us on a Tuesday, April 28th.. shy at first, yet not letting her mama think for a second that it is anything else than actual labor.. when her parents got to a hospital for a check it turned out that Kasia was at a stage when she can stay for labor.. from here things moved way faster than before.. She entered a bath, which felt like a bliss. With every surge she focused on her breath and that made her stay calm throughout the whole process. To the point when she had to reassure her husband that she felt no pain. Yep, that's her own words, 'at the stage when we were in the hospital I felt zero pain, I was so excited to meet my baby soon that I may have been vocal at times what got Danny scared a little, so I had to tell him I'm absolutely fine, and didn't feel any pain, but that releasing sound simply felt good..' At a certain moment Kasia felt that baby turned spine to spine. She had to step out of the bath to a bed for the final birthing phase. She was asked to lay on the bed flat but refused, knowing and feeling that a side position worked more for her.. At that moment she was offered a number of options to speed things up. She refused all of it, because she felt it was ok. Every hospital has their magician. It turns out the one in Denmark as well. Kasia was joined by a lady who helped her with the final stage of labor, to position Kasia and her baby for birth. In no time Abigail was born, this sweet little girl that you can see in the photo.. The midwife who assisted Kasia during labor and who was offering different interventions came to apologize to her at the end for doing so 'You didn't need any of that, you did it all by yourself and you did so well'.. She did, she absolutely did! What a strong and amazing mom she is, a first time mom who trusted her body and her gut and was given to experience a beautiful, calm and empowering birth, just the way she was hoping for before..
