I'm so excited you're thinking of adding a doula to your birth team!
Birth is the most ordinary miracle you may ever experience. Millions of people around the world give birth every day, but you're the only you giving birth! It's profoundly magical and can be deeply empowering.
From vaginal to surgical, hospital to home, I'm here to support you every step of the way. As a doula, you can count on me to make sure you feel confident throughout the entire process. And as a photographer, I'll be there to capture those beautiful and powerful moments as you bring your baby into the world.
My own birth stories inspired my desire to pursue birth work. Having a doula alongside my partner and me - to guide, encourage, and support us - made my childbirth experiences more powerful and memorable than I could have ever hoped for. I want to give that same experience to as many families as possible, through my work as both a birth photographer and doula.
So take a look around and see if I'm the right "doula-tographer" to add to your birth team!
I can't wait to meet you!

Photos of the incredible moments you bring your baby earthside can be such a powerful reminder of the badass parent you are!
Yoga is a wonderful way to help you connect with your baby throughout pregnancy and can give you some pretty amazing tools to guide you during labor & delivery.
Some nice things people have said about me
I am SO HAPPY we chose to have a doula involved in the birth of our second son in Japan. You want someone in your corner who you can be your most authentic self with, and I found that in Micah. She was a resource for information, an emotional sounding board, and cheerleader rolled into one person. Having Micah there strengthened the amazing connection between my husband and I. She was supportive, compassionate, an advocate, and basically a labor & delivery encyclopedia! I’d highly recommend her to other mamas for an informed, supported and empowered birth experience.

I'm Micah the pink haired doula
I'm a Saginaw, TX doula and birth photographer and also the wife of a retired Navy sailor and a mom to two crazy girls! My own experiences of pregnancy, childbirth, and parenthood have fostered a profound love of and appreciation for the transformative power of birth. This is a huge part of what has shaped my desire to be a birth worker. My goal is to create safe, welcoming, and supportive spaces for all kinds of families as they navigate their own journeys into parenthood.
As a "doula-tographer", I understand that this is an incredibly special time in your life, filled with anticipation, excitement, and maybe a little nervousness. But don't worry! I'm here to walk alongside you, doing everything I can to make your childbirth experience as joyful and unforgettable as can be.
When I'm not at a birth or meeting with a client, you can almost always find me outside...either camping with my family, reading a book on the porch, or sipping a fancy cocktail with a meal. Nature speaks to my soul, so I'm in it as often as I possibly can be (and I'm probably barefoot)!
come get to know me as a person and as a doula!
