My Birth Philosophy
I also celebrate families in whatever form they take. I believe that a family is defined by the family themselves and is not defined by sexuality, gender, race, or class. These families, like everyone else, can greatly benefit from a loving and compassionate doula to help guide and support them through the birth process.
As a birth doula, it is my job to provide emotional, physical, and informational support to both mother and partner before, during, and after childbirth. I believe that a woman's birth experience will remain the most memorable events of their life. I want that experience to be positive and empowering for each of my clients. My role is to help my clients navigate the world of birth using my knowledge, experience and support with a compassionate heart.
I trust the natural process and believe that for low risk women, few interventions are needed. However, birth can be unpredictable and sometimes require them. Women have the right to be informed about these things throughout their pregnancy and birth. Making them a part of the decision making process allows them to walk away from their experience empowered.
