I want to make a picture book of photos that my mom took of my birth for my midwife as a way of saying how grateful I am for my homebirth experience and that she was a part of it. My mom thinks it is weird and DH said to do whatever I wanted...a lot of help their feedback was... What do you all think of the idea? Is anyone doing something similar?

BTW-I hope everyone is enjoying their babymoon and sending labor vibes to those still waiting...

Would you make this picture book so that she could not only admire it but show it around to clients and prospective clients as an example of what a home birth could be like? I think that would be a great idea. However, if you would not want her showing it and just keep it personal, it would seem like a bit of a waste. Though I am sure she would appreciate it.

It sounds like a neat idea.

sounds like a fabulous idea to me. just make sure the pictures are well edited and focused on the subject & not background stuff. black & white really helps with letting the eyes focus on the birth & not the extraneous "stuff" in the background.
