Happy International Day of the Midwife
As birth photographers, we get to witness our clients do something incredible. To capture a person giving birth is to capture the pinnacle of human strength, perseverance, and beauty. But we also watch something else incredible - we watch and capture the love and support of midwives. These providers are fearless. They balance life and death in their strong but gentle hands. They offer words of encouragement, and then sometimes, when it's necessary, they provide strong direction. Informed consent is one of the founding principals of their practice, and you can see it in the way they talk to women and their families...inviting them to the informed guides of their own birth experiences. These midwives sit with women on their hardest days, on their best days. They don't flinch in the dark moments. Rather, they're the faces we look to when we feel like the world is closing in. Midwives, you are our heroes. We're honored to capture you doing one of the hardest and best jobs in the world.
