Nurture Oklahoma started off with a brilliant bang with guest Stephanie Nicole who is a fantastic OKC birth photographer. She was actually the photographer who documented my own home birth in 2020! One of my favorite quotes from Stephanie in this stream was “Home birth is like a sleep over”. As a doula and a parent who has had a home birth, I fully support this message. There is just such a wonderful, supportive, intimate atmosphere at a home birth where the whole birth team and family feel connected in the birth journey. It is really something unique.
I am so grateful Stephanie came onto the Nurture stream because we were able to discuss some pretty deep conversation topics such as out sourcing as a self employed professional as well as the barriers in place that can prevent people from be able to have the support they need during birth & postpartum.
While Stephanie does plan on changing directions with her photography business and documenting families rather than continue to be on call for births, I highly recommend checking out her website by clicking here if you are looking for a family photographer. If you watch the Nurture stream you will also find out what Stephanie’s birth work journey has led her and her big plans for the future!
Our community will be so lucky to have you once you finish your education for this next big journey Stephanie!
