Hello! I am Aly, local to Whidbey Island and a birth enthusiast! I am excited to be offering Birth Education classes on the island. I have 3 children, each of their births unique and in different environments. I also have been photographing births for 6 years, and have seen births of all kinds. With my experiences and now training through Birth Boot Camp, I am able to help guide you to having your own amazing birth!

BIRTH CENTER & HOME BIRTH CLASS (4 Weeks) $200
