The gorgeous Leah Marcus with her 1 month old son, Avery. Leah had a very healthy pregnancy and a successful, midwife assisted home birth. She says that her pain tolerance is much higher than she ever imagined it would be. She labored for 41 hours before delivering her son and says if she made it through her labor she can do anything. Avery's lungs were a little troublesome after birth and he had to be hospitalized in NICU for his first 4 days of life. Leah also suffered a near 3rd degree tear she didn't have dealt with right away. She finally found a doctor able to repair her tear and after two attempts at stitching, she is finally on the road to healing. Leah has had some difficulty nursing but is working through latch issues with the help of a nipple shield and supplementing pumped milk. It was so wonderful to end our day through the lens of a brand new mama easing into her own.
