In the wee, small hours of July 13th, Kaleigh and Matthew welcomed their little girl, Hayden Michelle into the world. The room was quiet and dark. They were surrounded by the ones they love most, and Kaleigh proved to everyone, and herself, that mothers are strong. This is their story.
“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers–strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.”
“All children mythologise their birth. It is a universal trait. You want to know someone? Heart, mind and soul? Ask him to tell you about when he was born. What you get won’t be the truth: it will be a story. And nothing is more telling than a story.”
