I am a doula/midwifery assistant, placenta artist/encapsulator, and a gentle birth advocate currently serving as a lead for a group working to bring a community birth center to Asheville, NC. We have some beautiful images to use in our campaign, but, as the demographics reflect, these images are lacking in diversity/families of color (read, shockingly white). :) If any of you wonderful women might be willing to donate a photo or two of your home, water and/or birth center births for use on our website and marketing materials it would be so greatly appreciated. You may see what we already have in place here:www.wncbirthcenter.com

"We have a secret in our culture, and it's not that birth is painful. It's that women are strong.”
-Laura Stavoe Harm
“Whatever way birth happens, it is your rite of passage into motherhood, and that passage is to be celebrated.
Natural childbirth is a passage, cesarean birth is a passage, and birth with an epidural is a passage to be celebrated.
That passage cannot be taken away from you. Every mother’s birth experience is valid, and an act of courage.”
