Welcoming Our Baby Girl

Baby Story - Beautiful Newborn Photography @natashaskitchen

This week we welcomed our baby girl, Diana, into the world. We are so thankful to have a healthy, beautiful daughterย and a blessed delivery. I wanted to share her baby story with you along with loads of newborn photos. Thank you to everyone who prayed for our family during my pregnancy. I’m so grateful to be surrounded by such caringย readers, friends, and family.ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Our first child was born via Emergency C-section which I won’t go into, but my prayer for this delivery was to have a normal labor with a healthy baby and healthy me :). Once you’ve had a cesarean, it’s risky to go too much past your due date so I scheduled an induction with my Doctor about a week after I was due. All the while, I had been praying to go into labor sooner on my own. The morning of my induction came and I was so excited that I didn’t sleep much that night.ย My husband, son and I were all up early getting ready.

[My hubby took this belly pic of me on my Due date (March 7th)].

Just before we left the house, I got the call that the hospitalย was full and I would have to reschedule. We were bummed and tried to goย back to sleep so my son crawled into bed with me (because it was the only way we could get him back to sleep) and my husband went to David’s bed. Then I felt a strong kick and boom; she broke my water. My son could tell I was in pain andย became very concerned. I told him to go get daddy right away becauseย mommy needed his help so David bolted outย of bedย yelling, “Daddy it’s an emergency mama needs your help.”

Literally, a fewย minutes later my Dr. called to apologize that they had to reschedule but she was happy to hear thatย Diana had already decided that this morning was her time.ย Since we were packed and ready, we were on our way. I amย in awe of God’s timing in jumpstarting my labor naturally; a last minute miracle!

On the way to the hospital,ย my contractions grew stronger and more painful and my son was very concerned saying,ย “Daddy can you drive a little faster?”

[Of course we took a picture together before we entered the hospital doors, knowing that when we came back out, life would never be the same].

Welcoming Our Baby Girl -1

[Ha ha this is what girls do before the real contractions kick in].

I’ll spare you the labor details but I will say that I wanted to hug my Mom and tell her how much I appreciated that she gave birth naturally to all 5 of us and in Ukraine no lessย (labor pains cannot be compared to any other pain).

[David’s first time holding her – he was singing rock-a-bye when she started crying and then he was shushing us when she fell asleep. It was so sweet]

The hospital provided a service from Bella Baby and allย of the photos below were taken by Kim Price who did an amazing job capturing our sweet bundle and our overwhelming joy.

My husband Vadimย was wonderful and helpful during the processย and I’m so thankful that he was there to support me. I’m also incredibly blessed to haveย a Christianย Doctor who I know prays for all her patients and who stuck it outย the entire day to deliver our daughter.ย Diana was born atย 10:12 PM on March 13th,ย weighed 7 lbs 8 oz and was 20″ long. It was such a beautiful moment to be able to hold her in my arms and hear her cry as soon as she was born. It was definitely a piece of heaven on earth. She isย perfection – wonderfully created by her Creator. Her hair is so long, dark, and gorgeous. I’ll be makingย ponytails in no time.

      Thank you so much Wendy and happy birthday to your daughter! I’m sure you find it hard to believe she’s 19! Children grow up way too fast. I want time to stand still so I can just enjoy these young stages longer :). Our first child, I was always thinking about the next stage and when crawling or walking or something else would come, but I’m basking in the now this time around ๐Ÿ™‚ Reply

    Natasha, first of all Congratulations! She’s so precious. God works in mysterious ways. I know someone who’s first delivery was an emergency c section. She had her other babies naturally, went into labor very overdue on her scheduled C section days because the doctors said induction for VBAC is very risky.
    So good to hear that you had your baby naturally. God Bless you and your little bundle of joy. I get misty eyed looking through the pictures. My little one is almost one. Reply

    Congratulations on your little blessing!!! Diana is a beauty!!! Im so happy that you had a good pregnancy and delivery. I also wanted to hug my mom and tell her how much I loved her for having me and my 5 siblings!! I never knew how painful labor is until I had both my children. Not to mention that my mom drove me to the hospital when my first child was born because my husband was still working. She was outside the door during the whole process, crying. Thankfully, I only found that out after my son was born. Because I don’t think I would have survived if I knew. My husband did make it in time to see his son born, whew. And I agree with you that support from your husband is important and helpful. It seems so much easier when he is holding your hand through it all ๐Ÿ™‚ Children are a blessing from God.

    Congratulations to you and your family! Diana is adorable and for someone who has given birth recently you definitely look fantastic, wow! You’re blessed with wonderful genes ๐Ÿ™‚ Ukrainian women are exceptionally beautiful! I had C-section in a small town in Ukraine, (I’m a foreigner) back then I knew only a few words in Russian – you won’t imagine what I had been through. I don’t know what could have happened if it wasn’t for God’s miracle! Certainly, children are a gift from the Lord! Reply

      Hi Cher, I cannot even imagine what kind of experience a C-section in Ukraine would have been. Praise God he helped you through it! I am definitely thankful for modern medicine in the US. I was just commenting about that to my husband the other day. thank you for your kind words. ๐Ÿ™‚ Reply

    What an amazing story and miracle God has blessed you with! I am beyond excited for you and am certainly praising the Lord with you ;). You looked absolutely glowing during your pregnancy, but it doesn’t even compare to the way you’re lighting up in the pictures whilst holding your baby girl. So sweet! Enjoy every minute with your beautiful family. Also, I absolutely love her name!! Reply

    I am in awe of those photos! They capture the moment perfectly ๐Ÿ™‚ Congrats on your daughter, she is a beauty! This makes me want another little one soon! ๐Ÿ˜‰ It is amazing that you had a Christian doctor, that really does make the labor that much easier, although still painful! Reply

      I actually didn’t know she was Christian or that she prayed for her patients when my son was born. My sister told me that afterwards. She has been my Doc for both babies and she delivered all of my sisters children. I guess you could say she’s our family Doctor. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m so thankful to have her. Reply

      Agreed! He is so good! Praying for a speedy recovery as well. I am of Ukrainian descent as well! And I had an emergency C-Section with my daughter now 3 and I won’t go into details either but God touch, healed my daughter and brought her out of the jaws of death. Thank you for sharing your birth story. Our God is good!! Reply
