“Birth is about making mothers, STRONG, COMPETENT, CAPABLE mothers who TRUST themselves and know their INNER STRENGTH”

home birth emotions

“Just as a woman's heart knows how and when to pump, her lungs to inhale, and her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows how to give birth”



“Jessica is kind, friendly and has an obvious love of photographing births. She captured the most memorable and cherished photos that I have which are the photos of my daughter's birth. There is absolutely no way I could have remembered all the emotions that I experienced before, during and after the birth, but Jessica was able to capture it all. She excels at capturing all the raw moments and every emotion while you focus on bringing your little one into the world.”
