Picture this: you've just moved halfway across the world to a brand new country. You know absolutely nobody in your new "home", you have two little ones that are under two years old, and better yet, you're pregnant and expecting your third child! Meet Tsheilyna and Patrick. I was immediately intrigued by their story and was very excited when they reached out wanting to hire a Dubai birth photographer to document the birth of their third child. This was going to be a very special birth; these pictures were going to mean the world to their friends and family who were not able to physically attend the birth because of the distance.
Tsheilyna chose to deliver at Corniche hospital in Abu Dhabi, and what a wonderful decision that was! Every time I go back to Corniche hospital I am convinced time and time again of how incredibly supportive their labor and delivery staff truly is. I've had the pleasure of witnessing several births at Corniche Maternity Hospital, and have nothing but good things to say!
A special shout out to Tsheilyna's lovely midwife, Sofia Machado. She was an absolute rockstar and excellent support for Tsheilyna through an entirely natural and unmedicated birth experience <3
