I hope she charges as much as the doctor does. Talk about being tied to your job....

I photograph births. Both as part of my business and My experiences seem to be much different than this woman's, though. I've never had to rush off for a birth. Usually I get a call saying "I think I'm in labor, just a heads up" and then 10 hours later "OK, we think you can come now". So it's not like your rushing through traffic in a panic like in the movies. Births take a looooooong time (in most cases) and you have plenty of advance warning.

"...to capture the later stages of labor. This has resulted in numerous speeding tickets."

Yeah, that hardly seems worth it. Speeding tickets are $200-250 in my area...for a $700 fee? That would be a deal-breaker.

I enjoyed shooting the births of both of my daughters. The first is on film and print, the second on CD and print. A CD was given to the head MidWife for him to use at Georgetown University for teaching. Well, it was also used at a Rhode Island University; and just days afterwards, we ran into a MidWife who saw it there. She recognized my wife and I at a small concert near home. One of the MidWives who was at the birth, was there with the one from Rhode Island. Crazy! My wife is famous..... :)
