Midwife Visit with Jo

Wednesday 5th February

I was lucky enough to accompany Jo to one of her visits to the midwife at her local doctor surgery which was really nice to see all the check ups and procedures that are taken (measuring the baby bump, listening to heartbeat, general checks). During the visit I just snapped away as the midwife was doing her checks etc, I wasn’t allowed to include the midwife’s face in the photo which actually worked out well because the visit and my project is all about Jo, so the photos are thoroughly focussed on her. I wanted to experiment with using different angles when taking the photos, predominantly focussing on Jo and her beautiful baby bump. I’m really chuffed that Jo allowed me to come with her, afterwards I felt like i’d been able to document something even more personal to her which is going to be great to include in my final piece.

Here’s a contact sheet of images from the day:

    • Really helpful, calming and assuring. My mother is a midwife and she loves her job and is passionate about the people she works with. Her favourite thing is seeing the newborn babies for the first time and the happiness of the families.
