***I am now welcoming birth photography clients starting May 2015 in and around Harrogate, England!***
Hi! I am an American, DONA-trained birth doula, Certified Lactation Counselor, professional birth photographer, placenta encapsulator, and midwifery student in the Harrogate area.
I believe that anything is possible in birth.
I love helping and watching women grow into confident mothers who think for themselves and follow their instincts. My role in a growing family’s life is to encourage an educated, personal code of conduct that is unshaken by all the outside influences that rattle our brains daily as modern parents.
Each mother knows best for her own child, and I like to work to uphold that for every family.
My experience has spanned four years and over 50 births: homebirths, waterbirths, cesareans, VBACs (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean), unmedicated hospital births, epidurals, big babies, little babies, and all kinds of doctors, midwives, moms, dads and families. And it is all beautiful to me!
I serve a 50-mile radius around Harrogate, UK including York, Leeds, and most of North Yorkshire, and have access to base/post housing.
