I was so surprised when I got “the call” that May and Rolawe were at the hospital, preparing to welcome their son into the world – 4 weeks early! The little man just couldn’t wait any longer to meet his parents and join life on the other side.
Mekhi Ademide was born on August 11, 2014 at 4:46 pm and his journey to birth was a bit of a wild ride for mama and papa. After some long early labour through the night and contractions that were slowly intensifying throughout the day, nobody suspected that as soon as they broke May’s water there would be 20 minutes of transition labour, 5 minutes of pushing and …. Mekhi would be here! He came fast and furiously into this beautiful world and what a blessing he was.
Congratulations May, Rolawe and Mekhi :: it was an honour to capture such an important and personal event in your lives.
