Birth Story Services

Every mother has a birth story to tell. The birth of every child is unique, and uniquely experienced by his or her family. Yet birthing can also often be a blur, and the details may be easily forgotten over the years. Such a precious memory is worth being preserved!

I offer birth story writing services to help new parents preserve in writing these special memories of their child’s entrance into the world. Through in-person, phone, or web-based interviews, I will gather the timeline, details, and feelings of your birth story. Then, I will craft it into a story that can be treasured and perhaps shared with others. I offer the following packages and add-on services:
