A Midwife's Granddaughter is Born

051A5623

She is one of those who offers the hours of her life to others, catching babies before breakfast, holding mamas up and teaching them how to hold their own through the wildly beautiful ride of pregnancy, birth, and baby. One woman's hours for everyone else. And here it is her turn, to attend her daughter’s side as she eases her own granddaughter into the world. Hands that have held so many in their first seconds of life the first to hold this one, her own blood pulsing through the beauty of it all. Sisters, daughters, text with anticipation of news, and generations flood the room long before they actually visit. There is family in this room, wisdom, knowledge, love; this baby girl has entered the world well.
