The Supporting Hands of Birth

by Mrs. BWF on May 14, 2012

This picture represents the involvement that family and care providers can have in a birth. It is beautiful when everyone comes together to support mom in having a wonderful, safe birth.

Kim says, “This picture really captured home birthing for me.  A trained midwife whose love, gentleness and skill have overwhelmed me.  This was our second home birth with her.  She caught, Lucca, our 7 yr old in this same room 7 years previously.  She remembered that our eldest daughter, Willow,  had cut Lucca’s cord 7 yrs ago. Now it was Lucca’s turn.  My husband, Sam, is helping him.  I am holding our newest daughter, Shiloh, who is wrapped in the towel.  All of these hands play(ed) such important,  sweet roles on my life!  And I love the many colors!”
