Paper Crane

What's in a name?

Many people ask where I came up with the name for Paper Crane Birth Services. Years ago, a musician I've loved all my life released an album using imagery of a paper crane as a metaphor for life. 

When you're doing origami, every fold you make in the paper (even the imperfect ones) helps form the delicate art in the end - just like in life, every event (good or bad) and milestone in your life helps you become the person you are in the end.

When I started my business, Paper Crane Birth Services was instantly the name I was drawn to. I think of pregnancy and birth as one of the many folds that helps turn us into who we are, and it's a privilege to be a part of so many people's life stories.
