    The whole family, in one place again. Families partner with us for postpartum doula support for a variety of reasons. This family chose our longest support package because the partner needed to travel overseas for work within a few weeks of baby’s arrival. Each postpartum shift, we spent time processing current challenges and prioritizing her needs for the day and for future visits. Our support for this family included individualized lactation and bottle feeding support, infant sleep support, preparing meals and snacks, household cleaning, and newborn care.

January 12, 2024     Welcome to the world, sweet James! We are so glad you’re here. I think the most meaningful words to accompany favorite photos from this birth are the words of the birthing family. We adore our clients so dearly and feel so grateful to walk alongside you during this transformative time. “I can’t say enough good things about Gather Birth Cooperative and Brittany. I was lucky enough to have her as my birth photographer, and besides capturing BEAUTIFUL photos that I will treasure for the rest of my life, she was also a source of comfort and expertise on an incredib ..read more

As birth photographers, doulas, and lactation professionals in Minneapolis, we’re always pleasantly surprised when clients manage to find the time to write us a review on our Google page. For one, being in charge of a newborn is A LOT. Kudos to those among us who can do anything other than feed, clothe, and otherwise support their baby in those early days (months!). Meredith’s baby is about to turn two and she still has yet to sufficiently express her gratitude to the folks who enhanced her birth and postpartum experience! (I’ll get there eventually, I promise.) Here are just a few of the revi ..read more

Real Postpartum: Parenting in the NICU

    Sometimes birth plans, expectations and hopes go completely sideways. It can happen suddenly or insidiously. Either way you find yourself in this surreal state of being. Sometimes your little miracle needs support after birth to do basic things we often don’t anticipate: breathing and eating on their own. Sometimes you start your parenting journey in a completely unfamiliar environment: a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). As an experienced NICU nurse, I have a special soft spot for these sessions. I’ve walked alongside countless families navigating the highs and lows of their ..read more

    After hearing so much about Sebastian’s big sister during the process of his Birth, I couldn’t wait to meet her at their New Family Session.

September 19, 2023     Welcome to the world, sweet Sebastian! We are so glad you’re here. This birth was filled with so much love- from the innate connection with her husband, to the devoted nurse that also made them laugh between contractions, to the supportive OB catching her babe. In the role of birth photographer, it isn’t a given that there will be anything more than a brief conversation with the birthing family when we’re actually in your birthing space. During this birth, I got to enjoy a time of alert rest after she got relief from the epidural, before it was time to start p ..read more

    Welcome to the world, sweet boy! We are so glad you’re here. We love when our birth clients ask us to come back to capture this fleeting time with their newborn! Our documentary style New Family Photography sessions are less of a styled shoot and more of a cozy conversation, especially when we’ve had the pleasure of walking alongside the family throughout their pregnancy, birth, and initial postpartum time. As we were documenting this family’s time together, it was reaffirmed just how important partnership and communication can be in getting through postpartum and parenthood. Po ..read more
