    Hello, I’m Jo Robertson, owner of Lillian Craze Birth Photography.  I’m so happy you’ve discovered birth photography and want to find out more! I love all aspects of birth from the moment you discover two blue lines to the day you hold your baby for the first time after nine long months. Birth photography is providing photographic coverage of your labour, birth and post-partum. These are moments that can not be rehearsed, paused, or reproduced. It only happens ONCE. Hiring a professional birth photographer means that this moment is preserved for a lifetime. I am based in South Wales and Read more [...]

As your doula I can support you both physically and emotionally throughout pregnancy, labour and the postnatal period. I can support you in working together with your care providers by helping you Read more [...]

    I became a doula because I passionately believe that all women deserve to be supported to birth however they choose. I have been a doula for 5 years and have had the privilege to be at many different types of births, all unique and powerful and extremely humbling. I balance working with raising 3 young children and looking after our assortment of animals.
