Whitney Williams of East Layne Photography is an amazing photographer and so much more! She is part of the birth team! She will jump in if she is needed. She is committed to using her talent as a catalyst to help midwifery and every thing birth GROW! I just adore her and am humbled she chose me to feature in her blog.
Midwifery is an ancient profession dating back to well before the 18th century. It is as old as the awesome power of childbearing itself. In fact the first midwives were simply the mother's and grandmother's of the women in labor. These midwives were held in very high regard.
"If a woman doesn't look like a Goddess during labor, then someone isn't treating her right."
