Our Intimate in-home Maternity Session
Exactly 3 days after this in home maternity session we welcomed our second child, Braylen Daniel Bauscher into this world. Weighing 6 lbs 14 ounces, our family of three was forever changed…
My water broke in the middle of the night on January 8th, and by the time morning rolled around I was experiencing enough contractions to head into Labor & Delivery. As we patiently waited for my body to progress, our doctor began to worry we were at risk for infection as I was not dilating or progressing whatsoever. Now a little back history on my first delivery. I had a scheduled c-section with my daughter 4 years prior at exactly 35 weeks. Why? This was due to a very complicated & dangerous vasa previa. With that being said, I knew there would always be the chance of having a second c-section with our son, but I had hoped and prayed to have a v-back as I had experienced a very normal and healthy pregnancy the second time around. After weighing all of our delivery options, within 30 minutes my husband and I were being prepped for the OR to deliver this baby via cesarian… again.
We welcomed our precious baby boy at 2:05 pm. Tuesday January 8th, 2019!
My recovery physically the second time around has been quite the journey. I can’t tell you why, but for whatever reason this time has been a lot harder on my body, but with each day that passes I can feel myself becoming stronger and stronger. I owe a special thanks to my family who has been by our side, helping out in any way possible. Note to ALL mommas out there: try not to refuse help from a loved one after having your baby, say YES. With my first, I tried to do EVERYTHING myself, and found myself not only exhausted physically but mentally and spiritually as well. So do yourself a favor, don’t be so hard on yourself & accept those generous offers, I promise you’ll be thankful you did!
I can’t thank you all enough for the outrageous amount of love and support we have received. I feel beyond blessed to have so many loving and loyal family members, friends and followers who genuinely care about my family, so thank you from the bottom of my heart. Adjusting to being a mother of two is something no one can prepare you for, but I am soaking up everyday and EVERY sleepless night as I know these moments will soon be gone forever. <3
