The Birth of Rumi

I can’t count the number of times I have teared up putting this blog post together. The woman, and future mother in me weeps at every loving look, every timed ache, every soul moving push and every extraordinary touch. The alchemy of it all still stirs and swells in my heart even now.

I feel so fortunate to have capture this magical, natural home birth here in Bali. Thank you to Lauren and her beautiful family for inviting me into such an incredible and intimate moment. And welcome to this crazy, beautiful world sweet Rumi.
