a little bit holistic, a little bit modern...

Hello! My name is Stacey. I am honored that you are here, on this little corner of the web, exploring more about my style and work. 

I live and work in Los Angeles, California with my husband and 3 children (ages 36, 11, 9 and 5). I pinch myself daily that this is my life, and I have so much gratitude that I am supporting families on their own journeys.

 

I work as a full-spectrum doula, photographer, and meal prep chef: THIS is my personal dream career. 

 

 I strive for balance, as true Libra at heart who loves a little bit of everything all mixed into one. I am passionate about mental health, empowering ourselves, eating clean good food, self-care & community. 

My passion for birth work stems from my passion for all things birth and the fascinating differences in every single story.

When I was pregnant with my first child I found myself lost for hours on Youtube  (before Instagram, crazy, I know!) watching birth videos one after another, after another. Birth is beautiful, birth is fascinating, and birth is a magical moment to experience - the in-between two worlds. The spiritual and the physical worlds collide. Needless to say, I am in love with pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum healing as well as the parenthood journey. 

 I believe in YOU curating your own story with family at the center of everything. I will validate your feelings, give you evidence-based information, help you make informed decisions, and take care of your family like I would my own.

i believe in you...

I believe every birthing person deserves the option to birth in the way they wish. I believe in advocacy. I believe in empowerment. I believe in mental health, and reducing the chances of trauma during labor and delivery. I believe in the power of our bodies. I believe in choice. I believe in supporting loss.  I believe in nutrition supporting us and orienting to health. I believe in holding space.I believe in documenting via photography.  I believe in YOU.

I follow what feels good, and avoid what doesn’t, and I help you tune in to your own intuition.

My children taught me how to love, and following my instincts on such a deep level, and my doula work is teaching me how to share this love even more. 

This is your story, and your journey, no one else can write this for you.

 

Thank you for supporting me in my practice. I am here to simply support you.
