Being able to attend another home birth was just a beyond amazing experience. Watching a woman labor is just so beautiful and empowering, and being able to capture that for them is just the icing on the cake!

9lb baby J came in the early morning hours after a very fast active labor; born within 45 minutes of us arriving! Mama did absolutely beautiful, in fact she smiled through the whole thing!
