No yelling or screaming or blaming or fighting…nothing like the Hollywood portrayals of birth.
"A mother gives birth to her son. This photograph captured a momentous introduction of a mother and baby’s first exchange. The baby is suspended in time, half way inside his mother and the world; being guided out by his mother’s own hands. Photograph was captured by friend and doula of the mother."
