This last weekend I helped welcome three babies into the world three mornings in a row. It was a busy, beautiful, special weekend. All three births were attended by such caring birth professionals, both midwives and OBs. I was humbled to be part of the care team welcoming these sweet babies into the world, and inspired by the strength of the families.
I also thought of how blessed I am to work alongside such compassionate, dedicated professionals. I had a chance a couple weeks ago to attend a Christmas party of birth professionals - midwives, OBs, birth assistants, doulas, lactation consultants, birth photographers. It was a fascinating group with a lot of laughter and some fantastic stories! I'm honored to be part of this community of support.
This photo is two midwives I'm thankful to know and work with, and it was neat to see them working together through a new partnership. Especially as we celebrate Christmas this season - a birth that changed the world - I've pondered on the calling of supporting families through birth. It is a sacred calling, and one I treasure.
