Maternal / Newborn Photographer
My philosophy regarding pregnancy, birth, and parenthood stems from a physiological mammalian perspective. As a doula, I draw on my education and experience from breeding horses (also mammals!) as well as ten years in veterinary care when supporting families during pregnancy and birth. I deeply value a mother's intuition and the innate knowledge that women are designed to grow, birth, and nourish babies. My first priority as a doula is supporting a mother's power and autonomy during the most significant moments of her life, which results in empowerment and confidence in motherhood. I specialize in home birth doula support, post-partum doula support, and birth trauma processing.
I love that my work doesn't feel like "work". It feels like the work women have been doing for thousands of years for one another. Supporting families during the greatest and most significant time of their lives is work that spans farther than one generation.
My natural and evolutionary perspective to life...that carries over to birth and parenting. My knowledge surrounding trauma and how that infiltrates mothering and nursing and relationships. My awareness of needs when it comes to post-partum support.
outside the box, trauma-informed, empathetic
