Judes Birth – Life Through A Lens

A few days ago on the 16th of August i was lucky enough to be at the birth of my little brother Jude. He was born at exactly 6:42 am weighing in at 8.4 pounds, he was a little bundle of joy!

I was by my mum’s side all the way and was able to capture these shots of Jude’s arrival. The experience was one I was lucky to have and will definitely never forget… Welcome to the world babba Jude!


The Beginning

My mums labour started in the early hours of the morning, she used gas and air to manage her contractions for a while before the last stages of Judes birth began….


..the nurse anticipating Jude’s arrival…

The Last Push

after 10 minutes of pushing Jude came into the world!

In The Moment

a few moments after Jude was born…

First Encounter

..the first time mum held Jude!

Swirls & Curls

Jude’s swirly hair!

Tied forever

Jude had a lucky knot in the cord to go with our lucky room number 7!

   In mums arms at last…

As a part of Judes birth we wanted him to stay attached to his placenta for a while so that the chord could finish doing its job completely and transfer all the nutirients to him. He stayed attached for about an hour until it was climbed and cut. This gave us some time to have a good look at the home he had grown within inside my mums womb over the last 9 months. It was like a tree.
