Like the willow strong and unbreaking, women must also transform during childbirth and surrender to each surge as they birth both themselves and their child. Being a birth worker is one of the most honorable titles I hold. To walk alongside a family during one of the most special journeys of their life. Advocating for them, making sure they stay informed, breathing through each surge for countless hours, capturing some of the most special memories, and watching mothers be born. There is nothing more raw and beautiful than birth no matter how it happens or where it takes place. It is such beautiful honor to be a calming encouraging presence in such a sacred space.
For decades women have supported women during birth. Having a doula is simply the support you deserve for the complex needs of childbirth.
As a motherhood photographer I capture the raw beauty of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Don't let these moments fade away, turn them into beautiful memories you can cherish for a lifetime.
I cannot recommend Angelia enough! She is beyond knowledgeable and such a sweet and comforting person. I can’t picture a better doula and I can’t imagine having had anyone else at my birth. She was so supportive throughout the entire process, from prenatal appointments to postpartum and everything in between. She is someone you definitely want on your birth team. I’m so glad I found her and that she was with me during my birth. Would give even more stars if I could!
