Posting a picture of her placenta printed on paper, she captioned the image: “His heart shaped home.” She also went on to share some sweet behind the scenes snaps at her current situation at home with her baby lounging in bed with her husband Penn and small dog, and an image of her body just before her son was born.

Domino is a doula, which means that she assists women in giving birth to their babies, enduring miscarriages, induced abortions, and stillbirths. Though not a healthcare professional, Domino has recently opened up about her role as a birthing attendant, and her own journey with pregnancy and miscarriage, admitting that she ‘stopping trusting her body’.

“On the road again… pregnancy after loss is [a] whole other thing. After two miscarriages in a row we were ready to call it. I stopped trusting my body and started to accept the fact that I was done.”

Continuing on she said: “As a birth attendant, I’ve seen and heard it all. It takes everything I’ve got to detach lovingly from the losses I’ve been present for and be in my own experience.”

“When I was pregnant at 25, I knew nothing. I had no community. I dove in blissfully unaware about birth and its mysteries. Now, with 10 years worth of experience to pull from, I treasure my birth community and the knowledge I have.”

Penn and Domino first began dating in 2014, with them going on to tie the knot in 2017 at a New York Courthouse in front of close family and friends. Domino has a son from a previous relationship, who Penn is stepfather to.

Congrats to the new family of four!
