A mom shared her heart-melting photos from her childbirth. The highlight of these pictures is her pet dog who stuck to her side during the entire duration of delivery.
Brooke is a doula. Doula is a woman who is a part of the childbirth procedure but not in the medical team. She makes the process much easier for the mother during, before, and after childbirth.
When Brooke Ellington from Midland, Texas gave birth to her son Boyd two years ago, Ryder was right by her side to show his support and love.
Sadly, after some time of Boyd’s birth, Ryder lost his fight against lymphoma. And after that, another puppy became a part of the family named Ranger. Brooke says,
“I quickly filled the void with our sweet puppy, Ranger. I just couldn’t imagine not having that love from a corgi for my family. Ranger instantly fit in and became a big part of our family right away.”
When Brooke delivered her third child, Ranger was right there for her.
Brooke decided to get her childbirth photographed by Ann who says,
“…being a dog-obsessed person to begin with, I just had to take pictures of him loving and watching her.”
Ranger supported her through and through.
“Ranger was so sweet and caring. He would lay under the bed watching Brooke while She was rocking back and forth on the edge. He would come and give her a kiss after she would go through a contraction.”
Brooke regretted not having a photographer during the birth of her son Boone, so she made sure to hire Ann this time.
“With my first birth I didn’t have a photographer and so wish I had those memories to look at and share with my children. When I had Kristin photograph my second birth, it was like she just blended in and was a part of the family. This time with my third birth, I couldn’t imagine her not being there. She was such a calm presence and was so sweet with my kids and my corgi. I will always cherish the way she captured this moment of the birth of my surprise little baby girl, Berkeley Sue.”
