Kelsey and I are in awe of the response our c-section article is receiving. It's reminded me of how important birth is: regardless of how it occurs. C-section birth, hospital birth, home birth, medicated birth, unmedicated birth. All of these births matter.
As we try to catch up to the emails and comments, I wanted to share WHY birth matters. It matters because it brings your child from one world to the next. It brings your child from your womb into your arms.
I photographed these mothers over the last few months, and all of these women had very different births stories. But despite the differences, this one moment repeats itself, again and again: the moment a mom meets her baby for the first time.
