Every birth has a story, and every story is unique. I’ll help you find the words to remember yours by, and in your words, we’ll find your family’s inner heroes.

 

Your Birth, Your Voice

Through interviews with you and your birth team, I'll gather every gasp, groan, whisper, and cry, and translate them into words that match your voice to tell your story as only you could.

From First Drafts

I offer something for everyone, whether you're just looking to translate your story into words on a page or to pair those words with photos in a finished book.

Life itself is a most wonderful fairy tale.

- Hans Christian Andersen
