“You are a birth servant. Do good without show or fuss. If you must take the lead, lead so that the mother is helped, yet still free and in charge. When the baby is born, they will rightly say:
‘We did it ourselves!‘”
-Tao Te Ching
In addition to photography, I am a CAPPA trained labor doula. I would be honored to serve you throughout your pregnancy and during your labor & birth. My goal is to help you make your childbearing journey the best that it can be by providing compassionate emotional support along with evidence based information to help you make informed decisions as they arise in labor. I believe that birth is a physiological and emotional event that should be respected and supported. Choices in birth are very personal and sometimes circumstances arise that are out of our control. The word Doula is a greek word meaning “a woman who serves”. I believe that all women deserve respect, compassion and kindness in birth. And because of the way in which your baby comes into the world is your first act as his/her mother, your baby deserves for you to be treated as if you matter! It would be my joy and privilege to serve your family during this beautiful time in your life. I hope to support you with kindness, equip you with facts, inspire you to believe in birth and to trust your instincts as well as enjoy the ride!
