Investing in your birth and postpartum care can set you and your family up for the first year of parenthood, and beyond. Many of our families are receiving support from their friends and family to book Brood services – adding them to their Baby Registries. And we’ve made it easier than ever for your community to give you the gift of Brood. Some call it Doula Care Funds, or Crowdfunding, and here, we call it Community Gifting.
Brood Care Inc. is now in Victoria!
We are excited to announce that we have expanded our Brood doula postpartum and birth services to Victoria, BC and the surrounding areas. This is the land of the lək̓ʷəŋən People, known today as the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. We have an amazing team of doulas that are excited to bring the Brood energy to those living and birthing on Vancouver Island.
How Chronic Pain Inspired a Thriving Newborn Photography Business
I felt trapped by my condition, and I hit rock bottom. After a pep talk from my husband, I picked up my entry level DSLR and learned it inside out, carried it with me on my doctor-prescribed daily walks, and kept my creative juices flowing and my mind fresh by offering quick photoshoots for friends. I started assisting and second shooting with other photographers so I could learn more. My camera became my therapy— physically and emotionally.
It takes a whole Brood!
We could not do this work if it weren’t for the countless people and organizations that have paved the way, and that tirelessly work alongside us. We are in awe of every single birth worker, educator, parent, activist, and medical professional that has fought to make family care accessible and affirming for all families.
Emma’s Doula Journey
I believe that connecting through sharing our personal histories and stories is incredibly powerful. It’s how I connect with the families I work with and the doulas in my Brood community. Now, more than ever, we need to connect and support one another, and I hope that telling you my story might help.
