Life's Work: Anissa's Prenatal Appointment

What if every pregnant person was able to get a more detailed look and listen to the process of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum before they experienced it for the first time?

What if we saw more care providers at work — their medical skills AND their personalities and styles — the words they use and the way they treat the people who walk through their doors?

That's what Life's Work is. A photo and audio documentary of the services pregnant people are seeking and care providers are giving across the U.S. We began with six days at Roots Community Birth Center, where this is just a piece of one of the detailed stories of care we captured.
