home visit / day 1 check-up

yesterday was hard, with all of us breaking down--mama & papa exhausted, my milk coming in, the kids feeling sidelined and stir-crazy. but here's a more photogenic moment of the day--poppy's first home visit by our wonderful midwife, regina (who's visited us at home for teatime + prenatal check-up for my entire pregnancy)! regina was also my midwife when i delivered per at home, and has walked with me through two pregnancies/births & one miscarriage. i treasure her wisdom, care & friendship.
