Birth Battle Cry

Most people look at a full term pregnant woman and talk about how anxious they are to see the baby, but I'm watching the mama--how she moves around her child as she brings him from womb to world, her transformation from gentle flower blooming with the promise of new life to warrior queen unafraid to cry out in the battle to bring him home. She is forever changed when she discovers the terrifying strength she had no idea burned deep within her gut, and to witness a woman meeting herself for the first time in the moments just before meeting her child is the most magical gift.

More photos from this weekend coming soon!
