In all cultures, the midwife’s place is on the threshold of life, where intense human emotions, fear, hope, longing, triumph, and incredible physical power-enable a new human being to emerge. Her vocation is unique. -Sheila Kitzinger
I was so elated when one of our local midwives asked me to photograph them for some updated group and headshots. You see, I had my maternity care & delivered my girls at this birth center. I was so profoundly changed by my first birth here that I made a career at the birth center for years. This place and these women are a part of two of my most treasured, beautiful moments in my life and I couldn’t be more grateful for their guidance to me and so many other women as they navigate the amazing, beautiful, and sometimes crazy journey to motherhood. I leave you with snapshots, both serious and fun (because midwives are a blast!), from our morning together. Press play, and enjoy.
