The Birth of a Family: A hospital waterbirth in Northampton Mass.

"Flying through the foggy morning sunrise, down the Valley to meet them. She was all long legs and gorgeous, having just come into her own and ready to meet her baby. Knowing just what to do. Purring through transition, swimming toward him, following her deepest instinct, clearing the path. And when he came it was all at once, floating up to meet her, pink and perfect. What a beautiful and courageous woman you are. What a perfect mother you will be to this child. What a gift to witness this birthing."
