The amazing Angela Gifford was our Mommy Con Portland shoot winner yesterday! She is mama to August (4) and Hazel (8 mo). Angela had a traumatic labor with August following an induction due to preeclampsia that left her fearful of birthing again. Through working with a counselor she was able to resolve that as long as she and her babies were healthy she could let go of her fear related to her birth experience. While she had to be induced again with Hazel her second birth experience was healing and transformative.
