It is an honor to be invited into a family’s birthing space. I believe everyone should feel empowered, supported and educated throughout pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood. Inclusion is a core personal value, as I strive for deeper empathy, understanding and knowledge. While I do not claim to be a professional photographer, I enjoy the opportunity to capture special moments throughout the intimate, transformative space of labor and birth. I am open to payment plans or partial bartering/trade.

Our experience working with Kayla Erbach has been exceptional! We opted to seek the services of a doula late in our pregnancy; Kayla was receptive to working with us despite the short notice, and helped us get onboarded in a quick and professional manner.

During our initial visit, Kayla completed a thorough intake and assessment of our needs to better understand how she could support our individualized care plan, and implemented these preferences throughout our working relationship. Kayla provided us with resources from both her personal and professional networks (acupuncture, therapy, donor milk) in response to our needs both during pregnancy and in the postpartum period. We found these resources to be of high quality and were very pleased by the referrals Kayla selected for us. Kayla maintained communication with us via text, email, and phone; She made herself available to us on both scheduled and an as-needed basis to review whatever concerns we had.

Kayla is a warm, kind, and compassionate person, which is reflected in her dedication to making the experience of childbirth and aftercare--for both mom and baby--a positive one. Kayla also made it a point to involve my husband in planning for as many aspects of our labor and recovery to help him feel a sense of how best he could support me through these processes. Kayla met with us at the hospital and provided tremendous encouragement and support during labor. In the postpartum period, she followed up with texts and calls to check on our status, inquire about any unmet needs she could help fulfill, and provided us with much needed remote support. 

Should you consider seeking the support of a doula in your own pregnancy, we would highly recommend Kayla Erbach. She is knowledgable and enthusiastic in the work that she does. We are so pleased with the care that Kayla provided to us, and feel confident that she will do the same for you and your family!
