I want to say that every birth I attend is the most beautiful. And they all truly are. But this one happened during the day with beautiful light and a team of amazing midwives and an incredible Doula. Every one there wouldn’t want to be doing anything else more. Below is just a small sample of the images from Zeno’s birth. Thank you Janet and Jeff for allowing me to share some.
Sue Baelen and her apprentice Cristalyn Haigon. Birth workers are always moving around in the shadows. Occupying a space between the present and anticipating future needs.
Kelly Murphy, midwide, admiring a woman at work. Women in labor are truly beautiful. Its hard to take your eyes off them.
This is what midwifery care looks like. She is utterly taken care of, supported, safe.
A huge hug for their Doula Sandra Loyd. After hours supporting alongside each other its always amazing when you get to let go and hug at the end. I think partners are often touched by how much birth workers care and how much devotion they bring to the family.
