Baby Donnacha was born on the 3rd of August at 1:25 am, weighing 8 lbs 11 oz. He was welcomed by mom Kelly, dad Eoin and brother Daithí.
Kelly had a quick labour and couldn’t quite believe it was time to go to the hospital. She arrived around 10 pm and baby was born a few hours later in caul, meaning Kelly’s waters didn’t break during the birth. As a participant of the Domino scheme she and baby were able to go home later in the evening.
The family welcomed me into their house the following day and I was able to capture some of the moments during their first breakfast as a family of four, as well as the midwife coming for a visit.
