If you’re expecting, let me say congratulations! Whether this is your first time on the motherhood journey or your sixth, every pregnancy is unique, intimate and personal and your birth experience deserves to be supported and honored. Choosing who is invited to participate and hold space in your birth are some of the most important decisions you will make, whether it’s choosing your care provider, labor support, or a birth photographer. I appreciate you taking the time to consider me as a guest at your birth.
Let me tell you a bit more about myself!
My name is Christi.
I love Jesus, people and especially mothers! I am always honored to get be a part of their pregnancy and birth journey.
I have been married for 24+ years and have 9 children, one of which is in heaven. My oldest is 22 and my youngest is 4.
I am an expert at managing chaos and occasionally share moments of our crazy, but beautiful chaos on IG and the blog.
The first birth I attended was 23 years ago.
I’ve been photographing births for 8 years and am a member of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers
I am a DONA Trained Doula, with additional training in Rebozo and Spinning Babies.
I’ve had the honor of attending home births, hospital births, VBACs, breech birth, and cesarean births over the last decade.
I work as a midwife’s assistant and love every minute of it!
I believe in the physiological process of birth and our body’s ability to birth. We were wonderfully made!
I believe that holistic care supports our mind, body and spirit best through pregnancy, birth and motherhood. Nutrition, exercise and self care are all areas I am passionate about.
I believe that a woman should be supported in her decisions and choices for her birth.
I love tea but can make a yummy cappuccino! I also love to indulge in a piece of dark chocolate with my tea.
My favorite place on earth is the beach. The open prairie is a runner up.
Your turn! I’d love to get to know more about you. Let’s set up a time to get together and chat!
