Whoa Baby! Photographer Captures Mom Giving Birth in Hospital Parking Lot
One mom in Green Acres, Florida, hired a professional photographer to capture the birth of her third child.
While Paula D'Amore was fully prepared for her baby's arrival, one thing she did not account for was that the infant could not wait for mom to get to the hospital to welcome her to the world.
Baby Daniella couldn't even wait for mom to get inside the hospital and was delivered right in the hospital parking lot.
Paula told IE: “I would have never imagined that it would have been right outside the hospital.”
When Paula found out she was having her third baby, she wanted to make sure to capture it all with a photographer. In the past, during the births of her other children, she does not have good quality photos, for her latest child, she wanted to make sure the moment was caught correctly.
“I knew if I ever got pregnant again, I would hire a professional photographer so that I would be able to have those pictures,” she said.
She hired Paulina Splechta, a member of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers, to capture the delivery.
“I'm fortunate that I was able to make it to the hospital in time to document the birth,” the photographer told IE.
Paula’s husband and her midwife helped deliver Daniella as nurses rushed out of the hospital to lend a hand.
Splechta took a series of photos from a night that the family will never forget.
“I was thankful I was able to hire her,” Paula said.
Daniella is doing just fine and came into the world weighing 8 pounds and six ounces, she is also 20 inches long.
