Are you feeling overwhelmed with all the information surrounding pregnancy, birth, and babies? Are you looking for someone who will cheer you on as you navigate this birth journey? Do you want to be reminded how badass birth is, and that you already have the ability to birth that sweet baby? Are you ready to take charge of your birth story? And do you want your birth journey to be documented in timeless, artistic images?
You're in the right place.
As a Cincinnati and Dayton based certified birth doula, my support balances between ancient wisdom and modern science. Birth matters, your birth matters. And you deserve to be supported and celebrated as you prepare for and welcome a new life.
After over seven years of offering a variety of professional photography, I'm happiest documenting births. It's simply a natural extension of the passion I have for everything related to pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. As a Cincinnati and Dayton based professional and experienced photographer, I strive to artistically and professionally capture the raw, honest, and organic journey of bringing a new life earth-side.
MEET CINCINNATI + DAYTON BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER + DOULA: EMILY FRIGO
Hey there! I'm Emily Frigo, a Birth Doula, Birth Photographer, and Placenta Encapsulator serving the Cincinnati and Dayton areas. I'm a certified Stillbirthday Doula, trained CAPPA Birth Doula, and a trained Birth Arts International Birth Doula. I'm also trained Birth Arts International Childbirth Educator, trained International Placenta and Postpartum Placenta Encapsulator, an Usui Reiki Master, and an experienced birth photographer. And of course, continuing education is very important to me, so I'm always expanding my knowledge.
But no amount of training could ever compare to what I'm most proud of, and that is my four amazing children. Each birth changed me. I have gained so much wisdom, empathy, and compassion... those of which could never be duplicated in a textbook.
I'll say this again, and again, and again:
Birth matters. Your birth matters.
I believe the childbearing year is transformative and should not be underestimated. Birth is a balance between the wise and wild, ancient wisdom and modern science, and I'm here to help you find your own perfect balance between instinctual and evidence based birth preferences.
You already have the power. And I'm here to compassionately and support you in your journey.
