Birth & Family Photography

Birth is normal. Historically, women knew this because they regularly attended one another’s births, learning in community as each birth unfolded. We have lost a lot of this generational wisdom, and birth photography can play a powerful role in building it back up. Consider investing in an amazing photographer to chronicle your story.

If hydration and nutrition are the WD-40 of pregnancy, then chiropractic care is the duct tape! Routine chiropractic care, especially in the final weeks of pregnancy can set you up for more comfortable and efficient labor and birth. It’s also associated with the reduction of many common pregnancy discomforts for a lot of women, including heartburn, symphysis pubis discomfort, swelling, and others.

Doulas provide invaluable support to birthing families. It does not matter whether you are planning a home, hospital, or birth center birth, a doula will be able to fill in the gaps as you go. We highly recommend that you hire a doula especially if you are a first-time mother or a VBAC mom, and at least consider hiring one if you are not.

Lactation Support

Breastfeeding may be a natural act, but it’s not always easy. In fact, there is almost always a learning curve for each breastfeeding pair. While we can provide a broad range of basic lactation support when everything is going normally, sometimes, we need to refer to a breastfeeding specialist that can go deeper and provide you the information and referrals you need to meet your own breastfeeding goals — whether you desire to do so for two days, two weeks, two months, or two years and beyond!
