A Special delivery | Talita Springer Birth Services http://www.talitaspringerphotography.com/blog/2017/11/chanell-birth-story-talita-springer  

After fourteen years as a military wife and seven years as a portrait photographer, I have had the opportunity to meet a LOT of people and make some great friends all around the world.  Through these fourteen years, each of these wonderful people left a little piece of themselves with me.  Some more than others.  It’s a great gift and blessing I do not take for granted.  One thing I need you to understand about me is that I become easily attached to people.  Especially my clients because they choose me to be part in creating memories and capturing special moments with them and their families.  I genuinely appreciate and adore every one of my clients.

 

Today I am sharing with you a story of one of these families.  Like most, we met through my photography business.  I was new to Ohio and looking for representative models and met Chanell in a local Facebook group.  We discussed a few things about sessions and my rep program and I learned they had four children and all were fashion models.  We met up for our first session on a beautiful warm day, and we all made an instant connection that felt as if we were meant to work together.  It seemed as if our minds were connected! Before I give them a direction they would just naturally do it.  The more time we spent together the more we learned  about each other and the closer together we became.  From the moment I met this family, I knew they were special!  Month’s passed by and our friendship blossomed.  One day she was a client, the next my best friend. Isn’t life just amazing?!!

 

One day,  my new best friend shared something so special with me.  She and her husband were trying for a fifth baby after a vasectomy reversal.  As a photographer who specializes in birth, newborn and children portraits alone, you can only imagine how excited that is then you add the fact it was your best friend. I cannot explain the excitement I felt for them and to be part of their amazing journey.  Month after month I would bug her, “Any news? Did you test?” I could not wait for the day she would call me and announce…TALS, IM PREGNANT!

 

That day finally came, and only lord knows the excitement for all of us, especially when they told me they were having another boy!  They included me in everything that was going on and really made me feel part of their team with the pregnancy.  On October 22nd at 2:19pm, the excitement (both good and bad) began with a text letting me know she was headed to the hospital.  One thing you learn very quickly in the military is to hurry up and wait.  That was how the next few hours were for me.  I rushed to make sure my camera bag was ready to go, my snacks were topped off (because no-one ever knows how long a baby takes to pop out!), batteries charged, gas tank full, all of that!  Then wait.  And wait.  Wait some more.  And a little bit more.  No make that a few hours more.  How much time has it been?  FIFTEEN MINUTES? Damn, I need to stay busy…  FINALLY, at 7:59pm I get finally get THAT text!  She’s getting an epidural and they are breaking her water. OMG yay, we are having a baby!  So, full of emotion and un-bottled energy, I grabbed my camera bag and headed out the door!I left quickly, drove maybe a tad over the speed limit, and rushed through the entrance to the labor and delivery section, walking like I owned the place, so I could capture my best friend’s delivery.  

 

Once I walked in her room I knew something wasn’t right.  I couldn’t place exactly what it was, but the feeling, the energy of the room was off somehow.  Everyone was serious.  No one seemed as excited and joyful as me.  Then I started hearing terms like “placenta abruption” and “hemorrhaging” and my heart sank.  My best friend was bleeding so bad that the doctors were having trouble slowing it down, and her baby’s heat rate was dropping significantly, a clear sign he was in distress.  There was a big possibility she had a placenta abruption. If you didn't know, placenta abruption is the separation of the placenta from the uterine lining. Only about 1% of all pregnant women will experience placental abruption, and most can be successfully treated depending on what type of separation occurs.  The placenta is part of your baby’s life support system, it transfers oxygen and nutrients to your baby. When the placenta separates from your uterine lining before labor it can interrupt the transportation of oxygen and nutrients to your baby.  In a case with a total or complete separation, delivery is often the safest course of action. If the baby is stable, vaginal delivery may be an option. If the fetus is in distress or the mom is experiencing severe bleeding, then a cesarean delivery may be necessary.  This baby boy was in distress and his mom was having heavy bleeding.  My heart began racing, I was shaking and my mind was screaming “ take her to a c-session now!”

I know a cesarean is a scary word and not a way most mothers would like to deliver their babies, especially when the birth has been planned for months and you emotionally and mentally prepare for something completely different.  Cesarean can save lives and is a necessity in some cases.

Things happened so fast, the moment I had that thought that she needed a c-session things got crazy and the doctors and nurses began yelling at each other, making calls, tossing Mike blue gowns and moving her. They were performing an emergency cesarean on my best friend!  A moment of fear and relief at the same time.  There was no time to process anything, but Im very proud of how calm mom and dad handled everything.

It was such an overwhelming feeling to stand there, useless, watching your best friend being wheeled away to the operating room and see her face full of emotions.

I was not allowed in there, so I sat in the recovery room waiting to hear how it all went.  The opposite of the hurry up and wait happened; the next twenty minutes seemed like hours!

But finally, little ‘Teo was cuddled up in his dad’s arms, all snug and warm, and PERFECT!

When they brought her into recovery room all this weight was lighted off of my shoulders and I am certainly of Mike's as well! Mom made it out fine.  The docs had to take extra time to control her hemorrhage but we had both mom & baby well and healthy.   The relief and joy we all felt once we knew they were both safe can’t be described.

"Breastfeeding to me is LIFE. It is how we were created to feed our babies. Its also a love/hate relationship. Even though God created our Breasts to nourish our children it is not always an easy task..."

 

DSC_1678DSC_1678

 

"... I struggled nursing my oldest 2. Different reasons affected each child and mines breastfeeding relationship i was determined to make breastfeeding happen with our third.. but we also not only entered a whole new world of a daughter, but also EBF, AND food allergies... that took a huge toll on our nursing relationship but i tried to learn as much as i could and cut out what i needed to keep nursing her..."

 

DSC_9469DSC_9469


"... Then at 5 months i got pregnant unexpectedly.. and as soon as i got pregnant she weaned and at the same time we lost that baby... pregnant with number 4 and i was determined more than ever.. no matter if it had allergies or not i was going to nurse...It wasn't and easy start because she had severe ties..."

 

DSC_9486-copyDSC_9486-copy

 

"...and low weight gain but at 3.5 she still nurses occasionally even through pregnancy of number 5 now i'm nursing number 5 whom is 20 months old and even though its been a VERY tough road (very severe food allergies and a very limited diet for myself) i still push on because it is what is best for her :) ..."

 

DSC_9510DSC_9510

 

"...Its not always LOVE, but when you look down at those sweet eyes and know that everything in that moment is right in their world... its perfect !!

DSC_9414DSC_9414

 

"... When I went back to work I found ways to nurse him, while still working. He's still nursing strong at 16 months and I'm so proud of us. Some days I'm completely exhausted because he still nurses during the night, but I know the time is fleeting and I will miss it when he's done."

DSC_9368DSC_9368

 


"... I love that I am able to produce exactly what she needs to grow and yet there's a meloncholy air knowing this is the end. Two of my children were excellent nursers with little to no difficulties. My other two children had journeys fraught with issues and tears and worry. Each time I learned something new, either about breastfeeding, myself, or my children. There are a lot of aspects to motherhood in which I feel very lacking..."

 

DSC_9372DSC_9372

 

"...But breastfeeding has given me a drive to do better. After all, if I can push through painful latching, low supply, searing pain, and teething then I can persevere through the other rough parts of motherhood with a bit of determination and patience..."

"... I realized it was no longer about the start, but rather the finish. I fear this part of our journey is going to end soon. She only nurses to sleep and when she needs comforted.

"... She still gives me the same look while nursing as she did when she was first born. The look of love and gratitude. That look is my reminder that we have done it. We created this amazing bond and nothing will ever change that. So for now, I will continue to cherish every moment."

One of the things I love almost as much as my children is creating images.  Nothing satisfies me more than being able to create special images for others to cherish and to love.  When Chanell contacted me with this photo shoot idea for her girls, I was over the moon and beyond excited.   We begin planning, she gathered the outfits and I started gathering all the backgrounds and things needed to create something magical for her and her daughters.   I am very excited and honored to share the process with you.

"What motivated me to be a part of this event is to show and educate other women that breastfeeding is a natural part of life..."

"...It's not sexual, we aren't sexualizing anything. We are providing nourishment, like women have for millennia, for our babies. It is pure. It is precious..."

"...Nothing feels better to me than knowing I am providing everything my son needs to survive, grow and thrive.  Nothing compares to the feeling I get when he is nursing and he looks up and me and I look in his eyes. It's the greatest natural high anyone can experience."

Our founder, Karen Shirk is alive today because of a service dog, Ben. Karen was home after open-heart surgery when a deadly mix of meds left her barely conscious and fighting for life. The phone rang and rang. Ben finally picked it up and placed it beside her, then began to bark. It was her dad, and he rushed over and got her the help she needed.

The Nurturing Mother - Jalisa Simmons

 

 

DSC_7132DSC_7132

 

 

This is Jalisa and her baby girl, she's a mother of three children. Who Just like many of us, she struggled with breastfeeding, motherhood, life challenge and trials. And she has a beautiful and encouraging message for us!

 

 

DSC_7126DSC_7126

 

 

"...I'm a 24 year old mother of three. I have three year old twin boys and a 5 months old baby girl. I have served in the Air Force the about six years now..."

 

 

DSC_7130DSC_7130

 

 

"...I first started breastfeeding my boys due to them being born 3 weeks early but I only was about to nurse them for about a month. I was really discouraged but during the time my husband was deployed and I was a single mom for the 1st six months of life. I couldn't juggle nursing two infants and prepare for my upcoming fitness test with no support..."

 

 

DSC_7233DSC_7233

 

 

"...Once I was found out I was pregnant with my baby girl I didn't really think about nursing until I started to do my baby registry. Once she was born she latched perfectly my initial goal was to just try to breastfeed and see how it goes. The look of comfort from me to her almost immediately made me stick with nursing her..."

 

 

DSC_7244DSC_7244

 

 

 

"...I've joined different Facebook groups and posted photos of me breastfeeding and I've learned and helped so many people along the way..."

 

 

 

DSC_7258DSC_7258

 

 

"...My long term goal is to definitely become more knowledgeable and be about to have a degree or some kind of certification as a lactation consultant. I'm super proud of myself being active duty and still being about to be a mom inside and out of my uniform is such a huge blessing to me. My advice to anyone is don't knock it until you try it..."

 

 

DSC_7348DSC_7348

 

 

"...Remember that our body is made for it so when you look in the mirror and see a few stretch marks, saggy skin look into the eyes of the one you gave life too and I promise it will be worth while."

The Nurturing Mother - Madeline by Talita Springer | Dayton Ohio Photographer http://www.talitaspringerphotography.com/blog/2017/5/the-nurturing-mother-madeline-by-talita-springer-dayton-ohio-photographer  

 

The Nurturing Mother - Madeline Greiner

 

DSC_7119DSC_7119

 

 

This is Madeline and her precious little princess!

Madeline learned through motherhood to love and appreciate her new body. Motherhood changes us in so many ways. We grow , we become stronger and sometimes in some areas weaker. But that is okay, because that is what make sis perfect for our children. To help them grow and become their best! Madeline has a short but sweet message to us!

 

 

 

DSC_7156DSC_7156

 

 

"...Eva is my third nursling. My body changes with each baby it holds. After each pregnancy I have to get to know my body again, like meeting a new friend..."

 

 

DSC_7118DSC_7118

 

 

",,,Three babies have changed more than my body. They have changed who I am. Without my body, and these changes, I couldn't be their Mama. My body gave me the gift of creating them and bringing them into this world..."

 

 

DSC_7154DSC_7154 DSC_7317DSC_7317

 

 

"...They make the world a better place and a more beautiful place. So I thank my body, for this miraculous gift."

The Nurturing Mother - Sullivan by Talita Springer | Dayton Ohio Photographer http://www.talitaspringerphotography.com/blog/2017/5/the-nurturing-mother-sullivan-by-talita-springer-ohio-photographer  

The Nurturing Mother - Sullivan Doumont

 

 

DSC_7212DSC_7212

 

 

This is Sullivan and her baby boy, you can just feel their bond and love <3 

 

 

DSC_7208DSC_7208

 

 

Just like many of us, who soon after becoming a mom realized that breastfeeding isn't as easy and "comes natural" like we all thought it would.  Having a baby born early adds that much stress and tension to the process of  learning the path of motherhood. She endured the stress and troubles many of us moms do when trying to make breastfeeding work.  Her message is beautiful!

 

 

 

DSC_7212DSC_7212

 

 

"...I always thought breastfeeding was natural and would be easy; however, I quickly learned it was quite the opposite..."

 

 

DSC_7209DSC_7209

 

 

"... When our little boy arrived five weeks early, I was expecting the "crawl to the breast" and perfect latch to happen. Well, it didn't! In the hospital, we were handed a bottle of formula and told that it was ok, that the baby just needed fed. I did not want to give up that easy as I felt that breast-feeding was a challenge that I wanted to fight for. After a few months and with the help of other mothers, lactation consultants and La Leche League leaders, we were finally successful..."

 

 

DSC_7311DSC_7311

 

 

"...Now, I couldn't imagine any other way. Breastfeeding is so much more then just providing my baby with milk..."

 

 

 

DSC_7222DSC_7222

 

 

"...I know that breastfeeding was right for my son and my family. But the one thing I have learned through this journey is that which ever way a mother chooses to feed her child, wether breast or formula, is the right way for them."

 

 

 

DSC_7308DSC_7308

 

Motherhood is hardly ever what we expect. Life is full of trials, challenges, sadness, happiness, love, heartbreaking. We need to come together as mothers and support each other.  We cannot do it alone. Sullivan was able to overcome her trials because she had a great support system and others to help her through the process.  No matter what your choice is on how to nurture your child we must remember to nurture each other with love and support.

The Nurturing Mother - Marissa by Talita Springer | Dayton Ohio Photographer http://www.talitaspringerphotography.com/blog/2017/5/the-nurturing-mother-marissa-by-talita-springer-dayton-ohio-photographer  

The Nurturing Mother - Marissa Smith

 

DSC_7107DSC_7107

 

 

This is Marissa and her baby, another mother who did not had the easy motherhood start we all thought we would. So many will be able to relate to her story and her situation but all of us are like her. We all want what is best for our babies!

 

 

DSC_7110DSC_7110

 

 

"This project is vital. I went through six weeks of intense hardship trying to nurse my son. Breastfeeding was hard from the beginning- latch issues, oversupply, etc. He was allergic to many of the foods that I ate and battled with horrific acid reflux. I went to multiple lactation consultants, I read until my eyes dropped each night, I got tongue and lip ties released, I cut out almost all foods from my diet.... still... I had a sick, hurting baby which in turn made me a hungry, exhausted, emotional mother who was in a lot of pain from breastfeeding..."

 

 

DSC_7180DSC_7180

 

"...Nursing my son was what I felt was the only and best option out there. As a last resort, we made the decision to switch to a hypoallergenic formula and my son was a different baby overnight..."

 

 

DSC_7185DSC_7185

 

"...I still deal with some regret, but I know that I made the best decision for my son. I was breastfeeding because of society's pressure, not because it was right for my family..."

 

DSC_7198DSC_7198

 

"...I am a happy mama, and he is a happy baby..."

 

DSC_7290DSC_7290

 

"...My bond with him is still immense, and I know that I am providing my son with not only the very best nutrition, but with a mom who is content, calm, and happy."

 

 

DSC_7192DSC_7192

 

 

Motherhood is hardly ever what we expect and planned. Life brings us many trials, challenges, sadness, happiness, love, heartbreaking. A mother should not feel guilty for having to choose bottle feeding over breastfeeding. While breast is best for some babies, formula is too. Specially if the breast is not the best for that particular child.   We need to come together as mothers and support each other's decision on how to raise our children.  We should not worry about what others thinks because in the end that matters not.  

 

 

DSC_7202DSC_7202

 

There should be no judging, discrimination because one made a different choice than the other. Because one choice seems more "natural" than the other. No matter what your choice is, how you do things or with what. Look at this mother and her baby. How can one say you can't share a strong bond and love when bottle feeding!?  When there is love and best intention, you are the nurturing mother your child needs. You are being your best!
