“Motherhood is a terrifying, unbelievably joyful leap into life. It’s the wriggle of movement in your belly, a tiny body on your chest, small fierce arms around your neck, growing bigger independent little souls, and a future full of possibility. Motherhood is pride in small people doing great things, and unending gratefulness that I get to be their Mama. And heart-exploding love, there’s lots of that too.”

*Kate, or Kate Ginger as I have called her lovingly, is one of my midwifery preceptors at Maternidad La Luz. I enjoy many moments catching babies by her side and she is a pleasure to work with. Love her!
