April 2012 Mom of the Month... Sera Petras

Sera was one of the first moms to give birth at Brookhaven Birth Center to a beautiful daughter named Chloe. She is so talented and has some super cool hobbies. She is the singer for a local band called Findells, and she owns her own photography business. All of the pictures in April's newsletter are of Sera's work (except for the one of Gina's birth). Check her out on facebook or her google her to see more of her amazing work!
