Contests can be scary. It's very vulnerable to open your work up to others - to feel that experts are looking upon your very soul...

But I did. I entered the IAPBP contest this year! No matter what it is very cool to see my work displayed along with other birth storytellers from around the world.

Because this is a season of gathering myself, kind of hibernating as I take a breath and steady my plans and intentions for this new year/decade I only entered one. It was all I felt I could commit to right now.



This shot is everything to me. The relief and joy are palpable as this dad grasped his new daughter. I was crying huge tears at this point! More on this beautiful belly birth here.


I look forward to seeing more of the entries and putting more of my work out there in the future. I think 2020 is a year whispering that we are worthy and capable. And I plan to listen.
