The way God put these parents on my path was amazing. After learning that Michael and Leslie wanted maternity and newborn photos, one thing led to another, and I became the doula at the birth of their first baby. They wanted a natural birth with no drugs or unnecessary interventions, and because of my experience as a certified doula and having all four of my babies naturally at home, I joined them at Central DuPage Hospital. Emilia came into the world in a calm and peaceful manner and Leslie gave birth beautifully. I’m grateful we have these photos to remind them of the miracle of birth. It was truly amazing!
