One Moon Doula Business Session | San Diego Birth Photographer

I had the pleasure of meeting all the lovely postpartum doulas of One Moon Doula Services, and getting to photograph them in one of their client’s homes. They are thoroughly dedicated to their jobs, and a delight to be around!

Wishing I had known about postpartum doulas when I had my kids 19 and 14 years ago!

Here’s what One Moon Doula Services has to say:
“In the days and weeks following birth, parents are often overwhelmed with the lack of sleep, the newness of their roles and responsibilities, and the seemingly constant and persistent needs of the newborn/s. While conditions usually rapidly improve after the first few weeks, getting enough sleep and support in the meantime can make all the difference between enjoying these early days and simply (and sometimes barely) enduring them.”

One Moon Doula serves families in North County San Diego and beyond, by providing a range of services in the weeks and months following the birth of a child. This can include light housekeeping and meal prep, education and how to’s about newborns, sibling support, reassurance about all the changes and challenges, and just an overall commitment to take care of you while you take care of your children.

Just a few of their doulas. Business sessions always include head shots.

Moments In Birth | San Diego Birth Photographer

What do YOU think of when you hear BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY?

Below, I’ve chosen some images from two very different birth stories, that can show you much better than I can put in to words, how I see birth photography.

Planned hospital birth, but baby had his own ideas, and was born in the backseat of his parents’ car, 4 minutes from the hospital where I was waiting for them to arrive. I took this as soon as they were able to lower the back window…

After birthing on the backseat of her car, mama had to help maneuver herself off the backseat on to a gurney, with her son on her chest and the placenta not yet delivered.

Getting to hold his newborn son for the first time.

Nursing her Rainbow baby. I loved that she had painted her nails in the rainbow colors.

Calling family to let them about their newest family member.

That first meal after birthing your baby!

Family prayer, giving each other strength.

Connected. Listening.

Out for a stroll to get labor going more strongly.

I can only imagine how much video footage I’m in!

Pausing for a few contractions by the the backdoor of the birth center.

This one has always been one of my favorite labor images. It was very warm during early May 2014, and we had the fan going strong in the suite.
