The Moments After This #Pregnant Girl Played A #Peaceful Song At #Home

Jackie Dives is a birth doula and photographer living in Vancouver. Since her early teens, she has been interested in women’s health and particularly birth. In 2010, after meeting another doula, she was inspired to become one herself. And now she’s creating beautiful photos by documenting the home births of women.

The one you’re about to see is titled Peaceful Home Birth.

Jackie wrote on her blog about it:

When I arrived at this home birth Mama was playing the piano. The mood was peaceful, with candles lit and soft music on in the background. Mama was surrounded by love. Her partner, her doula, and two of her sisters were there, caring for her.

In this peaceful home birth, Mommy plays the piano to relax.
