I recently created this illustration to represent the Birth Center in Taos where Tulsi was born. The midwives wanted something that felt “nurturing, supportive, magical, compassionate, gentle, spirited, mother&baby centered…” and that read as “northern new mexico” — mesa, mountains, desert wildflowers, butterflies, hummingbirds. I think we succeeded! I had fun dreaming this image up with them and am excited to see how they use it (on printed material and product for fund-raising)! And, thanks to my friend Penny for the lettering help!

Our relationship with the midwives has been a pure blessing. They gave us so much love, respect, attention, support, time, information, and the BEST care I could imagine. I have endless respect for ALL they do.
