Liv Amelie | Baton Rouge, LA Doula & Birth Photographer

One of the most intimidating things for a doula, a doula still in the beginning of their career, is being a doula for a fellow birth professional.  Trying to help guide a mom through her labor when you know she has the knowledge can be nerve wracking.  Recently, I was asked to do just that for a fellow doula. I was nervous, wasn’t sure what I should or shouldn’t cover, I didn’t want to unintentionally insult her.  Walking into her birth, I just sat back and witnessed her labor and it was  such an amazing raw birth.  So much strength. So much beauty. The most honed in mom I’ve seen.  She knew exactly where she was in labor and exactly when her baby was going to join us.   About a week later, I had the pleasure of photographing Liv’s newborn photos.

Strong Women
May we KNOW them.
May we RAISE them.
May we BE them.
