About the Host

Hi, I’m Raisa! I am a former physical therapist who decided to become a full-time birth and wedding photographer after my daughter was born in January 2018. I am navigating the labyrinth of emotions that have come after having an unexpected c-section. I started this podcast because I had it on my heart to share my story with the world, so I pray that it comforts and gives hope to other struggling moms like me. Thank you for joining me in my healing journey.
