About

Hi! I am Susana,

I am a Portuguese doula, a birth and motherhood photographer, and a videographer located in Lisbon. A Yoga instructor, Thai Massage Therapist, and also a current member of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers.

As a doula, I offer emotional and physical support during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum, and I also document this journey through motherhood with photography and video.

This is how I choose to inspire and empower families and women and support them in their individual choices.

I started my professional career as a preschool teacher but I became so captivated to photograph the first breath hearthside, and the first hours of tenderness between mothers and their babies, that I decided to do doula training.

Since then I keep studying several topics and interviewing different professionals related to women’s and baby’s integral health and well-being.

I am also a Hatha Yoga instructor and a Thay Yoga Massage Therapist, and my support as a doula is inspired and integrates all I have been studying and deepening as:

  • The nature of being human,
  • Yoga and Ayurveda
  • Macrobiotics philosophy
  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
  • Thai Yoga Massage for Pregnancy and Postpartum
  • Physiologic Baby Care 

I support you as a doula during pregnancy, birth and postpartum and document your story at any period of your life, so you can collect beautiful images of all your stages and phases:

  • Your pregnancy
  • The birth of your baby
  • Your newborn at his/hers first days earth side
  • Your little one’s achievements and changing personality
  • Your family dynamic!
