So the story behind this photo - it's a three generation shot!
During this birth the mom had so much wonderful support with family there that I was mostly trying to stay out of the way and snap photos (as the mom had asked for pictures if possible.) The laboring mom's husband and mother were standing by the side of her bed and I was behind them, looking between their shoulders. Then I saw this - mother and daughter, hands resting together on her belly as she birthed a little girl into the world. Three generations of women! It was so beautiful that I had to squeeze in to try and snap the shot. I think even with the tight crop, those hands tell such a story!
