A very warm welcome to the LightHouse Birth Collective! We're here to illuminate your path.
The only Collective of Birth Professionals of its kind, The LightHouse serves as the ultimate connection between expectant Delaware families and Maternity Care professionals throughout the childbearing year - Midwives, Doulas, and Photographers!
For mothers-to-be seeking a home birth, you'll be able to connect with each and every licensed Certified Professional Midwife who serves Delaware families - wise women with more than a combined 200 years of experience.
For women and their families looking to hire a Birth or Postpartum Doula in preparation for a delivery in any setting (hospital, birth center, or home), you'll find certified, experienced, and warm Doulas here at the LightHouse, too. The LightHouse is also proud to have several Still Birth Day-Certified Bereavement and Loss Support Doulas.
It's no secret that the childbearing year is one of unprecedented beauty - and at the LightHouse you'll find two experienced, internationally published photographers who specialize in Birth, Maternity, Newborn, and Family sessions. Like our Midwives and Doulas, our LightHouse Photographers serve every county in DE, in every birth environment. It's so nice to be able to put our own cameras down and be present in the birthing moments while a true professional snaps away - and you'll find them both here!
The LightHouse has so much to offer the mothers and families of Delaware, no matter where or with whom you're planning on giving birth. You'll find Professionals in the Collective with unparalleled experience, and with an enormous breadth of services that will warmly light the path of your childbearing year - no matter where it leads.
Welcome Home! Every County, Every Birth - There's a place here just for you.
