Welcome to By Design Birth & Photography, South Jersey HypnoBirthing, Doula and Photographer
Serving the South Jersey and Greater Philadelphia area with HypnoBirthing Childbirth Education, Birth Doula Support and Birth Photography.
Calm, Confident, Relaxed Births
Hey there! I’m Ebony and I’m a firm believer that your journey into motherhood, from conception to birth and beyond, is truly one of the most transformative and remarkable experiences you’ll ever partake in! This has been my experience with each of my babies I've birthed and I believe that your birth can truly be an amazing and rewarding experience for you too! Believe it or not, you're already "pre-wired" with all the necessary things it takes to have an amazing birth...but because of the culture we live in, you might need some help with "awakening" those innate abilities that lie dormant within you!
That's where I come in! I help expectant parents create confident and joyous prenatal and birth experiences, while capturing the beauty and strength of those moments.
I’d love to serve you in this way with my services, including: Mongan Method HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Education classes, Birth Doula support, and Maternity, Birth and Family Photography sessions.
I’d be so honored to have the special privilege to walk with you through this precious time in your life and I look forward to meeting with you soon!
Contact your South Jersey/Philadelphia HypnoBirthing Doula today for a complimentary meeting. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
What Others Are Saying
“Ebony is truly an amazing soul. Instantly I felt like she understood me and could see my vision for the birth of my babies. She didn't think I was crazy to birth twins without pain meds and in fact believed I could do it. She helped me prepare for it and supported me while I did it. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher, doula and birth photographer. I am eternally grateful for her presence during such a special, private and monumental time in my life.” -Angee
"Our son is the calmest baby. I'm so happy we took Ebony's class, it prepared both of us for birth. I recommend HypnoBirthing to everyone! Although I had to be induced for medical reasons, HypnoBirthing made my birth wonderful and calm. My husband wanted to tell the nurse and doctor to relax, it was funny how mellow we were during birth compared to them." -Melissa
“Ebony is incredible! As a first-time mom, I'm so glad my husband and I took her 5-week HypnoBirthing course. She helped us to completely eliminate our fears around labor and empowered me to enter into natural childbirth with confidence and excitement. Her hands-on classes allowed us the opportunity to fully understand and practice the techniques we had only read about before and gave us time to bond both as a couple and with our baby. Ebony went above and beyond to set us up for success. I can't recommend her classes and birth services highly enough!“ -Heather
"We are so thankful to Ebony for giving us such beautiful memories of our pregnancy and birth! Having our first child in Japan away from family was definitely not easy. But having taken HypnoBirthing with Ebony and her being present at our birth, we were fully prepared and had such an amazing experience! She will always be a part of our unforgettable, life changing event!." -Stacy & Omeed
“Ebony has made me feel so comfortable with giving birth! Her high energy and excitement about the natural birthing process is refreshing and reassuring. Hypnobirthing has given me confidence about giving birth and has made my pregnancy a much more enjoyable experience. I feel prepared and knowledgeable, whereas before I felt anxious and nervous. HypnoBirthing has helped the most with relaxation and just knowing that my body is designed for birth.” -Morgan
"I attended Ebony's HypnoBirthing course, which provided me with relaxation, visualization and breathing techniques that aided me during my labor and birth. As my doula, Ebony did a great job of respecting me and my husband's bond. I would gladly recommend Ebony and her services were helpful to me and my partner. She does a wonderful job of understanding what a couple needs." -Jessica
