Hey, I’m Liza!! I’m a certified CAPPA labor doula, childbirth educator, lactation educator and birth photographer in the Hickory and surrounding area. My crazy but amazing children are eight and three years old. Plus, I have a awesome bonus daughter that is 10. After having two very different experiences with the birth of my children I learned how amazing and empowering childbirth can be with enough knowledge and support. I want to help other women find the birth experiance they are looking for. The birth of my children and love of all things pregnancy and baby, led me down the path to becoming a trained CAPPA labor doula and childbirth educator. As your doula we will work together we will prepare you for childbirth with evidence based, unbiased research which will help you thoughtfully devise a birth plan you feel confidant in. There are lots of decisions surrounding childbirth, we will discuss all options so you can know what to expect. During labor, I will be with you to comfort and support you. I also provide support for your partner and will help them in best supporting you.
Photography has been a part of my life since I was 16 and several years later I obtained a degree in Photography Technology. It seemed natural to want to bring those skills in to the birth space of clients who desired to have their birth documented. I learned very quickly that it took me 25 years to realize birth photography is AMAZING and just maybe my favorite!
Each client’s experience will be specific to their wishes. I’m so excited to walk with you during this journey!! You were made to do this!!
