After documenting Finn’s arrival earlier this year, I’ve felt a major pull to the genre of birth stories. There’s something remarkable about watching this part of our journey and creating a visual timeline of a new human beings arrival. When Amaris asked if I would be there for her labor and delivery, I don’t think anyone had an idea it would be such whirlwind! In just under four hours Autumn was born, and Amaris stayed calm and focused throughout the speedy and intense labor under the guidance of Rainy City Midwifery. Her strength and peace were on full display, and she is a WARRIOR.
I am now offering birth story sessions in the greater Seattle area. If you or someone you know is expecting, please be in touch. I would love to meet you and talk about how this is one of the most lasting impressions you’ll have to carry with you after the long and incredibly monumental process of labor and delivery is over.
