Evan Shane: New Orleans Birth Photography

Chris and Lisa were expecting baby number 3! Their second baby came in a flash, just after arriving at the hospital, after only two hours of labor. Everyone was a little nervous that we would have a repeat of that, but thankfully, we had a little bit more time.

Grayson Scott: New Orleans Birth Photography

It was a Sunday morning. Jen had been in the hospital over the weekend for monitoring, and although this baby was healthy, heart tones were not where they should be.  I wasn’t on call, but the call came – ready or not.  An emergency cesarian was called for, at 33 weeks gestation.

She was set to be in the OR in a matter of 30 minutes. I bolted home, grabbed my bags, and rushed to East Jefferson General Hospital, praying I’d make it in time. Chris was waiting outside the OR, and we both got suited up to go in. They were both in such great spirits!
