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.

I am also a Birth Rocks mentor teaching antenatal classes in groups and on a one-to-one basis and a Baby Rocks massage teacher.

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!

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.

We have 3 children, Emily, Thomas and Dominic (Born in 2000, 2002, and 2005).We live on the Buckinghamshire/Oxfordshire border. I spent the first 14 years of my working life, until 2008 in the recruitment industry. I believe this has developed my natural ability to listen to what people want and then to support them to try and achieve it…very much like a doula. Since becoming a doula I have attended over 100 births and have supported dozens of families with their new babies. I started Read more [...]
