Before and After Birth Story

Some doctors, (for various reasons) as well as Government hospitals, do not allow birth photographers. Some parents-to-be also do not want the actual birth captured. Therefore Val offers a package called the Before and After Birth Story. At the place of birth, she will document the time before the birth and also after the birth. The package includes 40 digital images, a DVD as well as a digital slide show with licensed music.
