I want to share with you today our pregnancy and newborn photo session.
This month, it’ll be 6 months since Enzo was born. Time flies! Today I’d like to share with you the photographs that I took of this wonderful stage in motherhood and the first gorgeous pictures at home of Enzo as a newborn baby. 4 years ago I also wrote on my blog about the experience I had when Mia was born.

I think I’ve said it many times but I’ll say it again and that is that motherhood is the best experience that has ever happened to me in life. Yes I may be totally exhausted as never before, but I didn’t know what true love was until my children were born. Unconditional love. And it is a sensation so intense that it almost hurts. They are my top priority, I love watching them laugh, play, hug and kiss. They are perfect in all their good and bad sides.
The experience of this second pregnancy has been a bit different. Enzo didn’t let me eat sweets and he did not give me a truce, not even a tiny piece of chocolate. That’s why I had to take care of myself and the only thing that made me feel good was fruit, fresh salads and walking in nature. I have already said in my social networks that during this stage of pregnancy and motherhood I feel more connected to nature than ever. Every day I woke up bright and early, I did my yoga and meditation exercises and talked to the universe, giving thanks for this incredible being that grew in my belly. The truth is, that unlike Mia’s pregnancy and postnatal period, this time, the experience has been much more spiritual. I have felt strong and capable throughout.
I have trusted my instincts and the truth is that I get excited every time I think about the day of the birth. Because, with Mia I had a caesarean, I remember feeling afraid and my body did not respond. However, with Enzo, I trusted my body and my mind. I felt that I could do it and that it was something as natural as life itself and that everything would turn out well. And that’s how it was. Enzo came out and I held him so tightly, I also held him for the time I could not hug Mia when she was born. I will always have that feeling that I was separated from my daughter who had just been born. After the caesarean section they showed me the baby and then took her away, a feeling that I’ll never be able to forget. They separated us just after she was born and I cried a lot because it would have felt good to have embraced her at that moment. She was fine and healthy but that was the protocol.
And to Enzo, I hugged and I kissed him without stopping and we weren’t separated. When we got home everything was great, including breastfeeding which, with Mia, hadn’t gone well either. I’m talking about this because everything in life, everything we want, what we are, what we want to be, everything we can achieve and do, we just have to trust ourselves, our intuition and look for the answers inside . This is fundamental and I have experienced it. I’ve noticed that my attitude was different in each pregnancy and that’s why each stage of pregnancy, delivery and post-natal period has gone much better now.
I want to thank the untiring help of my mother, her energy and her mantras so that everything went well. Thanks to my father for his love, his words and for accompanying me to all the visits to the doctor. Thanks to Claudia Rosado, my great friend and the best gynaecologist in the world. Thanks to my husband because together we have created two wonderful beings.
And infinite thanks to my baby for his smiles, for how excited he gets when he sees me and wants me to hug him. Because I adore his little noises, his little cute mouth, his red rosy cheeks. I love his smell, his hands, his feet. EVERYTHING.
And now I’ll show you the photographs of this special and unforgettable moment.
