Why does birth matter?
Isn't a healthy mom and healthy baby all that matters? Sure, it is obviously our number one goal, but I think there are so many other ways to measure our experience other than are we alive! How you feel, how you were cared for and the support you had, matters. Your happiness matters. You matter.
As a Certified Advanced Holistic Doula, Certified Lactation Counselor and a Childbirth Educator, and I passionately believe in the power of women, birthing people and their bodies. I believe in being open to the possibility that we are stronger than we could ever know. I believe that change will happen whether we grit our teeth or choose to go with it. In short, I believe in you.
Birth is personal, birth is hard, and birth is transformative. I am incredibly privileged to be a part of this momentous time of change in the lives of growing families. You may not expect to have a transformational experience, but whether you like it or not, it will happen. Change is coming in the most beautiful of ways, no matter how your baby is born. You will forever be changed, and your experience through this change matters.
I believe that empowerment takes root where there is information, education, and support: I know you can do this, and I'll make sure you know it too.
