Birth Chat

Across all cultures and throughout history women have looked to other women for support and encouragement during pregnancy, labor and birth. Birth Chat offers a place for women to come together to discuss concepts, questions, philosophies and techniques surrounding labor and birth.  This intent of this group is for like-minded women to have a supportive environment to discuss all aspects of labor and birth and to be provided with resources to develop and achieve their birthing goals.

We treat all clients equally and do not discriminate against age, sex, gender, race, religion, ability, etc. At Water Bear Photography, our mission is love.
