Forest Hills Newborn Photographer | Two Bees Photography
I think in newborn photography, it is so important to remember that these babies truly are the most precious gifts. Amelia here is one of those amazing miracles. I traveled out to Forest Hills, NY to meet this family and hear about this baby girl’s arrival.
After a couple days of not really feeling movement in her belly, Amelia’s mom went in to her doctor. While initially all was ok, when she went back, doctors discovered that her baby’s heartbeat had significantly slowed and she was rushed in for an emergency c-section.
Amelia here was born “unresponsive”. There was no cry as she entered the world and immediately doctors performed CPR on her tiny newborn body.
Amelia was also born highly anemic after losing blood through her mother’s cord and needed transfusions in the hospital. The doctor told this new mother had she waited 10 more minutes, Amelia would not have made it. It is so important we, as mothers, listen to our bodies!
But Amelia is a fighter. A miracle. An amazing, beautiful, and healthy baby girl…and what an honor it was to capture some images of her during her first few weeks of life.
