Trogodišnja djevojčica doživjela je nesvakidašnje iskustvo kada su joj roditelji dopustili i da pomogne pri porodu svog brata.
Rebecca Joseloff, majka je dvoje djece iz Patchogue, New York, i otkako je zatrudnjela drugi put znala je da želi svoju kćerku Hunter (3) prisutnu na porodu.
Rodila je kod kuće i kada je taj dan konačno došao malena Hunter nije samo gledala cijeli proces, nego je aktivno sudjelovala. Cijeli porod zabilježila je majčina prijateljica i fotografkinja poroda Nicole Lahey.
This will be dubbed the famous couch. She will always remember how she birthed her son safely in their home while her daughter, Hunter, was the first person to touch his head as he crowned. I will be blogging this entire family centered birth story soon as it's too good not to share. #birthday #birthphoto #birthworker #birthdoula #longislandphotographer #longislandmoms #doulalife #birthbecomesher #birthphoto
U mjesecima iščekivanja majka se pobrinula da Hunter bude spremna za prisustvovanje pri rođenju brata. S njom je raspravljala o svemu smo može vidjeti ili čuti. Gledale su video snimke drugih poroda, djevojčica je naučila pravilne termine anatomije, poput riječi – posteljica.
Often clients ask me my thoughts on having children present at a birth. My answer is usually yes. Hunters parents prepared her so well for this experience. They discussed anatomy in proper terms. She knew the words "placenta" and she wasn't afraid of the blood she saw. She didn't cower when her mother roared her brother out and she didn't get nervous or concerned about it at all. She asked questions, she played with her babies, she ate snacks, and she kept us all entertained with her adorableness. She held her brothers head as he crowned, she cheered her mom on as she pushed him out, she rubbed her mothers hair so gently as they both gazed lovingly at this new tiny life in front of them. I said "Hunter, do you want to take your shirt off and hold your brother?" Without hesitation she began to take her shirt off but she did ask me why she was taking her shirt off. I replied "brand new babies love the feeling of your skin and you will love it too." She was in heaven and didn't want to give him back to his mom. She held him with the biggest smile as he bobbed his head around looking for a breast. She giggled as we told her he wanted to nurse. Birth is the most normal part of life; share it with your children and teach them from the beginning that birth is nothing to fear. Birth is strength. #birthphoto #birthbecomesher #doulalife #longislandmoms #longislandphotographer #birthwithoutfear #siblings #longislandborn #birthphotography #birthphotogs
“Djeca doživljavaju stvari prema onome kako odrasli na njih reagiraju. Ako se od poroda ne radi nešto strašno, niti trauma, niti djeca to neće tako vidjeti”, kazala je majka, piše The Independent.
