The beautiful Belle Verdiglione and daughter Isabella (3). Belle is also mum to son, Orlando (5). Belle was very excited about having a natural birth her first pregnancy and found a provider who she was happy with. She went to 42 weeks and then discovered he was breech. After taking the weekend to consider her choices they ended up having an elective cesarean birth. She was devastated after that. Belle was determined to have a VBAC with her second pregnancy and went to a VBAC clinic at the hospital. When it came time for her mandatory appointment with the doctor she said to her, "Wow, 4.3 kilos? I bet you're glad you didn't have to push him out!". It was then that Belle realized she couldn't deliver in hospital. She found an independent midwife and had an amazing experience at home. The birth was intense after a really long labor but she feels it healed her very much from her first birth. Belle has had a wonderful breastfeeding relationship with each of her children. She weaned Orlando around 12 months and this time had a goal of 2 years. She made her goal and has just gently come to the end of weaning her daughter. Belle is a talented photographer who works almost exclusively with women and new mothers. She wanted to participate because she often asks those women to be brave and vulnerable in front of the camera for her and thought it was time she found some of that bravery herself.
