The female body is nothing short of a miracle, stronger than any of us were taught to think about ourselves. During the pandemic deep into the shelter in place order, I got to witness a home birth. These images were inspired by the water birth, the beauty of both the before and after. As the powerful mama groaned during the last bit of labor, we all cried, this year cracking us in ways we didn't expect. But baby girl made her debut and they named her Elsie Anastasia, Anastasia meaning resurrection. Maybe life is coming out of all this pain. Maybe all the cracking means we are being reborn.
