Recently a client came in for her prenatal visit and mentioned that she had been perusing my website. She said that she had looked at all the photos of me and babies on Local Care Midwifery.

“I love seeing the pictures of you with babies. Wow. You really love babies.”

Just hearing her say those words, just imagining myself glazing at a new being, made me melt a little. I felt my eyes soften. My shoulders dropped slightly. The corners of my mouth lifted, just a touch. A nice, slow, long breath moved through me. Sigh.

Yes, I really do love babies.

May all babies be born into loving hands
