This design has a special backstory. January 2023 I gave birth to a sweet baby boy, River. Through my pregnancy I was blessed to be under the care of a loving and supportive Midwife. When it came time to have this baby my midwife, Michelle, was there to encourage and support my birth. Although baby was not born in the birth pool this piece of art was a product of his birth story. With each wave of contraction I would set down my paintbrush and breath.. focusing on controlling my breathing was my main goal. As one wave would pass my paintbrush would fill the time in-between. Painting has, in the last several years, become a cherished activity and release for me so it only seemed right to continue doing that while I awaited the arrival of our little surprise.
Choosing what to paint sometimes can be the hardest part, in this case I asked Michelle to choose what I should paint. She expressed her idea of a mother otter floating in the birthtub and so that's what we did, it fit the moments anad hours ahead just right.
I am excited to now share this special piece with all of you. If your a momma then I hope this will esspecially resonate with you. Whatever your birth story looked like you brought a new life into the world and are amazing! What a blessing and gift from the Lord these little babies are.
