Wow. This story, these pictures. Incredible and so beautiful. Your description of the energy radiating from her body. I have never thought of that, but it makes perfect sense. Thank you. Thank you for putting into words your experience. And that picture of the baby swimming up to her mama. Breathtaking!

This is so beautiful, and I love reading it from the perspective of a doula. What a wonderful picture of what they are meant to be! I hope that I have the privilege of doing it myself someday.

Wow, this was so amazing! Have you read The Red Tent by Anita Diamante? The sisters support each other during birth with their bodies, just as you described here! Beautiful!

What an amazing story. I normally skim a lot of the stories on BWF, but this was well written and the details were so important!
