Birth is such a powerful and transformative experience and I am honoured that you have arrived at my doula services page. Thank you for being here!
As the mother of four wild and wonderful boys and photographer of over 50 births I have a good deal of experience with many different birth plans. In my own births I have personally experienced hospital births, epidurals, natural births, home births, solo births, births attended by obstetricians, births attended by midwives, doula supported births, long births and very VERY short births!

Being able to help women experience positive, empowered births, brings me so much fulfillment. Plus, it’s an added bonus I can also provide you with beautiful, professional photographs that you will cherish forever.
