My Background

I’m a creative person with a passion for children and connecting with others. After many years as a professional photographer, I am making the transition to becoming a birth worker and I am excited to bring my photographic capabilities to this work. I am inspired by every day people, love, simple and extraordinary moments. I am interested in supporting and documenting families during the very tender moments of birth, as well as telling your story by photographing simple moments of family connection.

Birth Doula:

A birth doula is a trained professional who provides non-medical continuous physical, emotional, and educational support to a birthing person and their partner. This care throughout the birth process helps them achieve a healthy, memorable, and satisfying birth experience.

My Philosophy

I am passionate about providing non-judgmental, loving, physical, emotional, and informational support. This is your birth and I’d like to support and guide you as you welcome your new baby and grow as a family.

Specialist

Each woman’s needs are different after giving birth and placenta encapsulation provides different opportunities and benefits based on the physical needs of the individual mother’s body.  As your Placenta Encapsulation specialist I maintain the highest standards in safety and quality.  All placentas are processed in a dedicated workspace used only for placenta encapsulation.  All equipment has been carefully chosen to maintain the integrity of the placenta throughout the process. Our placenta pills contain only processed placenta, with no additives of any kind.

Placenta Print & Cord Keepsake

These are literally once in a lifetime keepsakes. The placenta print is made using the natural placenta blood to create a “tree of life”. The cord keepsake is made by forming the umbilical cord into the shape of a heart and dried.

Benefits of Placenta Encapsulation
  • balances hormones

  • decreases the incidence of postpartum depression

  • increases energy and facilitates faster healing

  • lessens postpartum bleeding

  • promotes healthy breast milk production
