After 35 Mom Angela Dearing was pregnant with baby girl, Jemma, at age 37 in these stunning maternity photos! She had her sweet baby girl, Jemma Ann, on May 6th, 2015. She was 7 lbs 7oz and 18 in long. Angela was in labor for 22 hours. Her labor was complicated because Jemma was not positioned in the birth canal correctly. The doctors wanted to take Angela for a cesarean section, but her midwife let her switch positions allowing Jemma to turn and drop. She was out in 3 pushes! She looked absolutely perfect. Jemma spent 2 days in the NICU because Angela developed a high fever during labor and infection was suspected. Angela also has a 5 1/2 yo son, Kingston, who loves being a big brother and is so sweet and helpful with his baby sister. Angela just returned to work at her studio a few times a week. Maternity photos were taken at Writhe Pole Dance, Everett, WA, where Angela is co-owner with 3 other amazing women. They are all moms in their 30s. Angela says pole dancing is an amazing workout and so good for the soul!
