I’m Amelia Protiva, certified Birth doula and photographer.

I'm Eli's wife, an artist, a coffee aficionado and professional baby snuggler.

In my doula practice, I offer evidence-based, science-backed, whole-mother care. I firmly believe that stress-free, lovely birth you long for is within your reach.

However your little one chooses to make his or her entrance into the world, I believe every moment of your journey is worthy of being celebrated!

“I do not care what kind of birth you have. I care that you had options,
that you were supported in your choices, and that you were respected.”
