Rhayn, freshly born, in the hospital. Notice that I am wearing a hospital gown which is between my baby and I? I also had an epidural and was unable to move. Doesn't this picture feel sterile?
Gwendolyn, at home, on my bed. Notice, I am naked and upright. I prefer to birth on all fours, or at least more upright. Surrounded by people I love and trust.
