I attended the peaceful home birth of this sweet baby girl. The first time mother was strong and confident in her body and the support around here to bring this baby earthside. This photograph is everything. All the hands coming in to assist and then there is hers, the mothers hand, placed so gently on top of her babys head for their first contact outside of the womb
I agree with Your Shot photographer Ivan Lesica who commented, "I do not know what to say and I mean it in a good way... Love this photo... So personal... Thank you for sharing such special and intimate moment."
