National Midwifery Week 2019

It is 2019’s National Midwifery Week (#NMW2019) and I have spent the last several days looking through some of the most incredible images of midwives walking the journey with birthing families. Reading some of the most empowering, ovary-throbbing and tear-jerking birth stories you could imagine.

“WITH WOMAN” / MID-WIFE

I believe that it takes a unique soul to be called to this profession. To spend countless hours studying the physiology of birth, researching and learning about how the body works and the best ways to support it during the process. To commit to a life on-call … always willing to drop what you are doing to stand beside, sit near, be the support for a birthing family … no matter the time of day, day of the year, or even own personal event that may be occurring. To walk into the birth space with calm, a sense of peace, love, and confidence. These women are so incredibly special.

While all birth workers, inside or out of the hospital, deserve recognition and acknowledgement for the hard work and dedication, this week we focus our love on the midwives. As I dug through my collection of birth stories, I was overwhelmed with the love and feeling of community.

Thank you for you commitment to empowering birthing people.

Midwife Blessing Song

Once mama and baby were settled in bed, these incredible midwives paused to bless mama, baby, and the sacred birth space with this sweet song and I just had to capture it on video. This song has been passed down within the Midwifery and Home birth Community for 30 years.

Thank you all so much for all that you do!


IT WOULD BE AN HONOR TO DOCUMENT YOUR BIRTH STORY.


Hi Friends! My name is Lindsey Eden. I am a Birth Photographer & Videographer and a Birth & Postpartum Doula serving Denver, Colorado and surrounding areas.

I am social, love connecting with new people, talking birth, laughter and will probably have my camera in hand (or close by) if we meet in person.

This work is my calling. This is my bliss. I would be honored to connect with you and support you along this journey.
