Sweet pink baby, very happy mama.  These pictures really capture that lovely joy that comes after a good birth.

Little Maryam!!


Gazing at their little one!!

Maryam water birth

A nice view of little Maryam again.  You can see she had some slight head molding but not much – molding is usually gone very quickly after birth, even if it’s more pronounced than Maryam’s.

Maryam cord cut

You can see that Maryam is not really happy with having her cord clamped!  Note how sh’e really pinked up at this point and even her fingers and feet are really pink.
