Birth Doula Services
"I can say that Maggie being there in person, and on-call in the hours before, 100% positively impacted our experience... It still brings tears to my eyes thinking about that incredible day bringing our first child into the world and I am so grateful to Maggie for all her evidence based education, physical & emotional support, and those hip squeezes." -Joni, first time parent

By choosing me to photograph your birth, you eliminate the need for an additional person in your birthing environment. You will already have a solid relationship established with me, lending to your comfort. As a trained compassionate support person, I will be able to capture your birthing experience without disrupting the beautiful moment.
Doulas hold non-medical roles, therefore, I do not perform clinical tasks, such as taking blood pressure, fetal heart checks, or vaginal exams. Doula care should be provided in conjunction with, rather than in lieu of, midwifery or obstetric care.
If you would like to use my services but have financial limitations, please contact me to discuss options that may be available to you.
If you wish to purchase a gift certificate for birth doula or photography services, please contact me directly.
