Welcome! I’m Felicia Randle and I am the owner of Peaceful Endeavors. I am married to my fascinating and handsome husband Kevin and we have 4 children. Every one of my childbirth experiences have been fulfilling and yet very different. My first birth was a hospital birth with an epidural for pain relief. My second birth was a hospital birth without pain medication and I delivered with a midwife. My third birth was a home water birth, and my fourth birth ended up being at a hospital with a doctor and no pain medication.
While I am extremely passionate about natural births and the sense of fulfillment that comes along with it, I understand that labor is unpredictable and sometimes requires intervention. I also recognize that everyone has different preferences when it comes to their birth story. I wholeheartedly agree with Ina May Gaskin who stated, "Whenever and however you intend to give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body and your spirit for the rest of your life." Because this is so near and dear to my heart, I am committed to my services embodying this quote. I will do this by educating you, supporting you emotionally, mentally, and physically during your labor, while simultaneously capturing those moments in photographs. Throughout the entire process, I will do my best to make sure it is exciting and peaceful at the same time.
I am thrilled to educate women and couples so they can make their own choices. Being able to make your own choices empowers you and guides you towards the fulfilling birth story that you desire. Once couples have had this life-changing and foundational experience together, they are on a journey. This journey is known as parenthood and it will benefit from the skill sets that they acquired from those first moments!
The groundwork that has prepared me for all of this is:
- a Exercise Science degree
- working in a midwife’s office
- being trained by Informed Beginnings
- completing photography courses
- attending photography workshops
- one on one mentoring
I have had a ton of experience and I am eager to gain a ton more. I am so excited that you have stopped by and I am looking forward to hearing from you, so we can talk about your family's needs in this new chapter! If you would like to contact me please click here.
