When Carson Meyer watched the documentary ‘The Business of Being Born’ she was shocked about what many women have to go through in childbirth and how little she really knew about birth in general. Birth is beautiful and sacred, birth is messy, and no birth is the same, if you ask Carson, so let’s not try to fit it into a box. Watching that footage in her early twenties was like an awakening of sorts and led her onto the path to become the doula that she is today. Hailing from Los Angeles, she’s also the founder of clean beauty brand C & The Moon, a childbirth educator – offering in person and virtual classes for parents – and a birth photographer. Since Carson believes, as she also shares during our talk, that looking back at the tremendous power of your body during birth through pictures can actually help with healing and possibly dealing with trauma. In our interview she talks about her journey, mourning the old while embracing the new, always learning and how to support yourself during pregnancy and postpartum.
