Photographer-doula

My doula, Cassie, came over with her cute kids on Friday morning to have lunch and fill out all the paperwork for her to use my birth for certification purposes. I just gotta say... I've got the best doula ever! She's totally spoiling us.

Listen to all this... She brought her massage tools and oils to show me and test out, her hand-held fetal heart monitor so I could listen to the heartbeat for a bit, some baby boy clothes her son had outgrown for us to have, and her super spiffy camera to take some belly shots. In fact, she'll be taking photos at the birth as well, and she said she'll take some postpartum shots too. AND she's going to give us a tote bag (with a birth saying and logo) and a newborn onesie that says "Born at Home" after the birth too! And all of this as a volunteer! Cassie, you rock! You better believe you'll be getting client referrals from me! Here are some of the photos she took...

Awww... you make me happy =)

Honestly, I love being a doula so much. I don't think I'm spoiling you. Well, maybe a little bit - but pregnant women need some spoiling! Plus, I do honestly feel completely honoured that you've invited me to share in your birth.

I can't wait to take pictures of the birth and the baby boy.

Oh - and you forgot to mention how I bought a birth ball for you, but you had already bought one for yourself.

YAY CASSIE! Man, I wish I were having my next kid in Arizona. You have such a great set-up, Busca!

Everything sounds so wonderful . . . I'm so excited for you with everything coming up! Thanks for sharing it with all of us!

So beautiful, and how awesome! I know I want tons of pictures taken at our birth (and maybe, MAYBE even video) but I have no clue who could do it! I just think everyone that will be there will be more involved than they could be if they were taking pictures! Your cute belly is so cute! :o)
