The Best of 2017

It's that time of year. The time of year where you reflect on the highs and lows and make goals for the next year. This year was such an amazing one for KRP. I was able to witness 22 beautiful births (and one more due any day now!) Each woman worked so hard to bring their little one/s into the world. The beauty and strength of the birthing woman is out of this world. I feel so incredibly blessed to have been able to hold space for these women. I look forward to serving even more women and families next year as the expand their families.

After spending way too many hours going through each gallery I've chosen one image from their birth to share here as my Best of 2017. May these images show you just how STRONG women truly are, and inspire you.

Thank you to each family that welcomed me with open arms, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2018.
