The empowering Michelle Dahl, mother of 5: Grace (17), Emma (15), Tate (13), Abel (2) and Ezra (10 months). Her first pregnancy was a cesarean birth but the subsequent 4 were healthy VBACs. Michelle's husband has spent several years battling addiction and finally reached a point where she had to kick him out to protect their family, leaving her a suddenly single mom to support her children. The transition has been a huge struggle but she says she is "already a better person and mother than I could have been before". It was an honor to capture her strength and her story.
