Start Motherhood On the Right Foot
My name is Candace Barber, and welcome to Birth Help Doula Services & Photography! Motherhood is not a journey that has to be done alone. As the age old saying goes, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Through 27 years of assisting friends, family, and countless new mothers, I have made sure mothers and their newborns start their life together on the right foot.
About Candace Barber
All my life I have been a caretaker. The people in my life have called me, “mom,” “teacher,” “friend,” and of course, “doula”. I am passionate about providing informational, physical, and emotional support to women during their pregnancy, labor, delivery, and postpartum support. Outside of my work as a doula, I work as a professional photographer, am a devoted mother, and teach piano/voice lessons. We have professionals not only experienced in photography but with children as well. This skill allows us to capture your memorable moments so you can enjoy them for a lifetime.
I am the mother of five children. I have been working as a doula for nearly 27 years now, and have provided doula support at several births for family and friends. In addition to my doula training, I’ve been trained in Childbirth Education at Bastyr University, and I am a Midwife Birth Assistant. I work as a professional photographer in addition to my doula services.
Benefits of a Doula
There is plenty of evidence to suggest that hiring a doula to assist a pregnancy comes with several benefits. In addition to having extra hands to help, a doula’s expertise leads to an overall more positive pregnancy for the mother. Organizations that have documented the benefits of doula-assisted pregnancy include the W.H.O., The Medical Leadership Council, and the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada. Below are the most common benefits of hiring a doula:
Fewer complications while in labor, thus reducing the likelihood of cesarean section.
Reduced labor duration.
Experience of labor is overall more positive when assisted by a doula.
At Birth Help Doula Services & Photography, I offer solutions for every stage of your pregnancy, all the way through post-partum. If I’m unable to assist you, then we have backup doulas that will be available for your convenience. In addition to offering doula services, I provide professional photography as a way to document your pregnancy and the early stages of your child’s life.
If you have any questions about how I can assist you, please contact me!
