Busy Bump Baby Shower Exhibitor Feature: Birthrite Doula


Looking to hire a doula for your birth or postpartum? Wondering what a doula is or what services they program? Wondering what the difference is between a doula and midwife? Meet Candice Tizzard! Candice is the owner of Birthrite Doula Services and Birth and Life Photography. She's an exhibitor at the Busy Bump Baby Shower on September 23rd and you can find out more about her below as well as in-person at the baby shower!

 

Birthrite Doula Services and Birth and Life Photography

 

Owner: Candice Tizzard



What kind of products and/ or services do you offer? I offer pre and postnatal support as well a continuous labour and birthing support for expectant women and their families. I also offer birth photography, which captures the story of birth being told. Recently I started offering maternity, newborn, and family photography.



What is the price point?

$700-1500 depending on what kind of birthing package you want. Photography pricing starts at $175


How long have you been operating and how did you start?

I have been a doula for 2 years. I had a doula for all three of my births and the experience was wonderful. I have always loved pregnancy and birth. After the wonderful and empowering experience I had at my own births, I knew this was the path I had to travel. I love my job, it gives me passion and meaning that is unexplainable in words. I have been doing birth photography for 1.5 years. I got a really nice camera for Christmas to take pictures of my family and brought it into my friends birth, the pictures were wonderful and powerful, full of moments that women forget in the blur of the birthing. I have not put the camera down since, I have set out to learn everything I can about this craft. 6 months ago, I expanded my services to include maternity, newborn and family.  I am still learning, but seem to be a quick study.

 

What is your favourite part of what you do? What is the biggest challenge?

 

Its hard to describe what my favourite part of being a doula is. For me its waking up at 3 am and its go time, it starts my day with a smile and a boost of adrenaline. Even more, Its the power, beauty and strength that a birthing woman has. Its the look after a birth that says “I DID IT!!!!” Its the satisfaction of knowing that I in someway got a look into the most intimate time in a woman's life. It’s both humbling and honouring at the same time, and moves me to tears every time.  The hardest parts for me is making sure that I have given a woman and her family enough education to make an informed choice and ask informed consent questions. Its really hard to see a woman who has to undergo unnecessary interventions. Birth doesn't always go as planned but a woman has the right to ensure that she remains in control and knows all the facts before making a choice that affects her and her baby.  Its hardest when a women feels like her care provider doesn't respect her birth plan, or is building a birth plan to protect her from her care provider.  As a birth photographer, there is nothing more satisfying than watching the birth of her baby unfold in still motion, or capturing that look of power in her eyes!! The hardest part is trying to get families to understand that the photos are for you and you only,  you choose what to share and what not to share. Just like every detail of your wedding and its photography is planned, the birth of your fist  should be a story to remember. Birth photography captures the moments and can fill in the blanks that birthing a baby has. The birth of your child is a one and only time event and there's no going back and re capturing it. I regret that I don't have video or pictures of my first, I have very little memory of it and wish I had!

 

If you’re a mom, what is one thing you wish you knew when you were pregnant/what advice would you give to a new mom?

 

I wish I knew what I know now of the physiology of birth and what a woman experiences during labour and to trust in that process. My best advice for new mothers, is belive in yourself and trust your instincts. Not everyone knows what they are talking about and not every piece of advice will be right for you and your baby. Parent the way that feels right for you!!!!
