Ancient Roots Doula

As a birth and newborn photographer I have been observing, capturing and filming new life and the emotional story that plays out for each family for years. As a mother, I empathize with the need for support during this journey. The births of my three boys were such empowering moments in my life; each one left an impression that will be with me forever. As a birth doula my goal is to help expecting parents feel confident in voicing their ideal birth experience, safe and educated in their decisions and supported from pregnancy through the birth of their child.

Birth is not about making babies, it’s about making mothers – strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.
– Barbara Katz Rothman
