Beautiful people – thank you for stopping by!
One way or another, you’ve made it to my page. Call it what you must but I call it the stars aligning. I am so delighted you are here!
But first – a little about me.
My name is Angela Gallo and I am a perinatal professional from Canada who now calls Melbourne home. Over the last few years I have spent time living in Australia, Mexico, and Thailand; all the while pursuing various interests in my life. In the process I made a couple of my own very cute babies and the rest they say – is history.
The births of my children dramatically changed me, propelling me into a world that has rocked my universe in a dozen different ways. What started off as a spur of the moment certification, has grown into a whirlwind of a career I couldn’t imagine being without.
As you can probably tell, I am so passionate about all things pregnancy, birth and motherhood culture. Self-professed childbirth junkie, I am also proudly a deep & committed supporter to maternal, infant & reproductive rights.
I am a birth doula and birth photographer who helps women approach their individual journeys, wholeheartedly & enthusiastically. I believe so strongly in the powers of a positive mindset and pro-active approach when working towards creating a birth story that feels most fulfilling to you & your family. I work extensively with women and their families, before, during and after birth, to help them take full ownership of their experiences – from start to finish.
More recently, I launched a Doula & Birth Photographer Business Course to help birth workers find the savvy they need to be the best professional they can be. It is a program that teaches the likes of Doulas, Birth Photographers, Childbirth Educators, Lactation Consultants, Midwives (and more!) how to combine purpose and profit; ultimately building sustainable, thriving, meaningful businesses.
I am an aspiring Doula teacher and am currently re-certifying with Doula Trainings International (the only training organisation I endorse!) in hopes of facilitating workshops and courses worldwide in 2017.
I also tailor create engaging content for like-minded audiences, hosting & speaking at events nationally & internationally.
You could very eaasily say that I live the way I birth –
with love, laughter, compassion, adventure, persistence and spontaneity.
I believe childbirth is to be enjoyed and embraced at every level.
I believe that the major transformative potential of childbirth should not be ignored or underestimated.
I believe, with every fibre of my being, that with abundant love, support and gentle guidance, every woman has an opportunity to birth in her own perfect way.
I believe that women are strong; real strong. And I am kinda addicted to watching the moment they realize it for themselves.
Expecting a baby, feeling overwhelmed, and don’t know where to start?
Or maybe you are bored or unnecessarily terrified from all of the grainy 80’s sex ed videos you’ve been forced to watch for information on birth?
Need your own personal cheerleader to remind you of your super-woman-badass-birth-warrior skills?
Are you looking for some real, honest, consistent, tough love to get you though one contraction at a time?
Need the joy & clarity injected back into your birth story?
Want a passionate, creative photographer to capture some your life’s rarest moments, on camera?
Don’t fret, babe.
You’ve got this.
And I am right behind you.
You’re in the right place.
