This little sweetie is Asa Paul, born just a week ago at home. Getting to know his mama and supporting her through her powerful birth and tender postpartum time has been a true gift. Asa’s mama was placed in an orphanage in India when she was a newborn, so her birthing experience and this time of bonding with her baby has had deep emotion and a profound impact on her personal journey. Just yesterday at one of our 3 home visits this brave mama shared that Asa’s name means “healer”. At times birth opens up wounds and at times it is a great healer. To every birth we bring not only skill and wisdom, but our love, hope and faith in the healing power of the journey.
