TESTIMONIALS

Why I do what I do.

Amey is absolutely amazing. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family and anyone expecting a baby. After a traumatic and difficult birth with my firstborn, I wanted to do everything I possibly could do to have a calm and more positive birthing experience the second time around and then I came across Amey. She is so easy going and so passionate about her job in supporting not only mum and bub but also dads as well. I honestly don’t think I could have achieved my successful VBAC without her outstanding and endless support and positive vibes throughout my pregnancy and labour. My experience was amazing and I would do it all again with her support in a heartbeat! We are forever grateful for what you have done for us Amey, we can’t thank you enough and we really treasure your friendship.

Amey is a beautiful, professional and incredibly amazing doula that I can say with absolute wholehearted certainty, helped make my delivery the calm, direct and beautiful experience it was.
Amey is such a beautiful soul that clicks with you instantly. She has a warmth about her that is inviting and settling, but also the drive and focus to be the best advocate for her clients wishes, that left me so impressed every time I called on her for support.
I do not believe I could have achieved such a positive birthing experience without the attentive support from Amey.
After having experienced traumatic birth with previous pregnancies, I can say now I’ve finally accomplished my final delivery with a much better outcome and mindset.

Our first birth was traumatic and resulted in an unnecessary c-section. I felt frightened when I became pregnant with our second baby. I asked Amey to be my doula, and I am so glad I did. Amey provided me with the knowledge, support, and skills to achieve the birth I so desperately wanted. I had a successful VBAC, without drugs or intervention. Amey attended ante-natal appointments with me, devised a birth plan, and was there every step of the way. Our birth was amazing and was a profoundly healing experience thanks to Amey. Amey took the most beautiful photos of our birth (the birth I chose) and the first moments of our new family together. I would love to do it all over again and I wouldn’t change anything.

Thank you Amey.

A big thank you to Amey for being my doula! The support, compassion, understanding, education and calm birthing techniques I received from Amey were second to none and simply priceless. I had certain goals and preferences that I wanted to achieve during my labour and birth, of which Amey helped me every step of the way.
I honestly believe that I would not have suceeded in my goals if it wasnt for her. The photos taken of my birth will be treasured forever. She captured the emotion and moment in time which is no easy feat.
Thank you once again Amey. Xx

Where do I begin to describe how highly I recommend Amey as a birth photographer but mostly importantly for me, as a doula. If only I knew for my first pregnancy exactly what a doula was.
From day dot Amey made me feel confident, empowered and well informed. With Amey supporting me all the way I had a very successful VBAC, completely drug free and she even turned my posterior baby in labour (who I was told would not turn at this late stage).
My birth was incredible and overwhelmingly healing. Amey captured moments that I will treasure for the rest of my life.
Thank you so much, Amey. Words will never express my gratitude.

Having Amey as my Doula was a key component in a better birth experience after a previous traumatic one.
Amey was my support person at hospital appointments and was there to attend my caesarean section after labour started unexpectedly early in the morning (a week earlier than had originally been planned). Amey also stayed with me for my first night in hospital which was very reassuring.
My family appreciated Amey’s professionalism, experience and positivity.

ABOUT ME

I have a bit of a reputation as a ‘non-hippie’ doula. I don’t do yoga, never meditate and don’t use essential oils. I’m a firm believer that all you really need to give birth is YOU, but with me as a member of your team, you’ll receive the emotional and physical support needed to birth like the goddess you are.
As a birth photographer, my aim is to be invisible whilst capturing one of the most precious days of your life. Birth photography is not about the crotch shot – it’s about the love, joy and intricate details of your birth and first few hours as a family. Be confident in the knowledge that you and your partner can be fully present to every moment as all your memories are being beautifully and professionally captured.
5 years and over 70 births means I have been able to perfect the art of simultaneously supporting and photographing births. I now offer both services in my Novel and Trilogy packages.



Thanks to Ladina Photography for the photo of me and my youngest baby!
