All photography provided by Little Bird Birth Services
Hey! I'm Julia. Little Bird Birth Services' story begins in 2014. I attended a prenatal class at Mission Midwifery for part of a Nursing assignment. While at this prenatal class I met a bunch of wonderful Doula's and Midwives. They suggested taking the Birth Doula course through Douglas College; however, due to time and stress of my nursing degree I was unable to. Move forward to 2015 when I became pregnant. I delivered my son in August of 2016 and desperately wanted to have a Birth Doula and Birth Photographer present. Unfortunately, we were unable to make this happen. My midwife was truly amazing--she is the one who inspired me to follow through with my passion and begin my journey to Midwifery. I just completed my Birth Doula training and am looking forward to providing women with the emotional, physical and informational support that I so desperately wanted at my own birth. I feel so honoured to be able to take part in such a sacred time in a woman and family's life. Birth is an absolutely beautiful process, no matter what way it occurs. My career as a Birth Doula is a stepping stone for my way into Midwifery.
The birth photography aspect of Little Bird Birth Services began long before I even knew about birth photography. As a teenager I always had my camera with me. Photography was a form of expression of self for me and I had dreamed of being a photo-journalist. While my career plans have changed, photography has always remained a passion of mine. Birth photography is specifically close to my heart because it allows me to capture the incredible once in a lifetime moments for families. Birth photography is beautiful, it is raw and it is pure, just as birth is.
By combining these two services, I hope to empower clients to create and fulfil the birth they have always dreamed of. With the support of a Birth Doula, women are much more satisfied with their birth experience. With a Birth Photographer to capture these memories, you can be sure and confident that every tiny detail of your birth experience will be captured.
