The birth of any baby is a magical moment, and being present at a birth is an absolute honor for all involved. Baby Max’s is no different, he is a perfect little Rainbow baby born via a maternal assisted Cesarean section, this is where Mum can help during her cesarean and then lift her baby to have immediate skin to skin, with baby being able to stay with Mum the whole time through the remainder of the operation, through to recovery and then to her room. Not a lot of Doctors offer this for women and it should be available for all women who are having a booked cesarean. Little Max was born on the afternoon of July 14th, weighing 2.5kgs 45cms long. His big brothers and sister were very excited to see him and he is the cutest little thing 🙂 Photos below, a big Thank you to Mum and Dad and to Nepean private hospital and of course Dr John Pardey who is one of the only Obstetric specialists to offer this for women and their families.
