Life is meant to be real – homes are messy, kids won’t always cooperate, and adulting is hard. I’m not one to judge, I'm right there in the thick of it all, too. As your doula, your photographer, your person, I will remind you you’re doing a great job.
There is always room for popcorn.
One of my love languages for my family is food, and when you're my client, you're family.
So grab a spoon - your soup is ready.
Practice makes progress, not perfection.
Progress means you are better than the you that existed yesterday. Perfect doesn't exist. Except your baby, they're perfect.
... but I never could have predicted what it would feel like to have a piece of my own heart existing outside of my body.
Or how accurately a sick toddler could
sneeze into your eyeball.
Or how accurately a sick toddler could sneeze into your eyeball.
Whether you have your entire birth planned to the last detail, whether your birth didn’t go according to plan and have some processing to do, or whether it’s 3am and you don’t understand why you don’t feel connected to your baby.
It pushes us past limits we never knew existed. It shows us what we’re truly capable of, and that it is something to be marveled. I have an unrivaled personal touch of making my clients feel like they are taken care of during their experience with me.
No judgement, no bias. You should be able to make your choices, tick your preferences, and then throw it out the window because your baby is actually writing their own story! I want you to feel like you've invited your favourite family member into your birth space - the family member that comes over when your house is messy because you need someone to share your news with.
We will share laughs, tears, and comfort as we take a walk in the sunshine, as I make you a warm pot of healthy soup, as I fold the clean fresh laundry next to you. I want you to feel like you can share in the excitement of your baby’s milestones, and have someone to share tears of pride on your baby’s first birthday.
