Congratulations, you’re about to have a baby! You’re probably Googling at all hours of the day: looking for the best car seat, the fastest route to the hospital, researching where your pediatrician went to med school juuuust to make sure it’s legit.

The hushed excitement pulsing through the recovery room. Three (yes, THREE!) big sisters, eagerly waiting to meet the newest baby girl. The sweet swell of mama’s freshly postpartum belly, cradling a newborn that’s been earthside for just a few hours. Fresh 48 sessions are magical.
