Women are Heroes

Anyone who has witnessed or experienced child birth will know the toll it can take on the female body.  Examples are different but either way it can be a tough but beautiful time.  Having witnessed two childbirths I can quite safely say that Women are Heroes.  They so often go through the mill for their new family additions and I am humbled to have been a witness so far.

Below is another image of skin to skin contact between my daughter and Holly.

First Skin

The first skin contact between a mother and her child is one of the most important and heart warming stages of the process.  Sweaty, covered in gunk and still attached, that baby is placed with the mother and for a second or two (although it feels a lot longer) everything goes calm.

The photograph speaks for itself and again it is graphic but that adds to the beauty.
