My birthing philosophy centers around trust; I encourage you to listen to your inner voice, trust your body and trust the laboring process. Women are blessed with incredible instincts and intuition. They can be confident in knowing that they are strong and they can do it! Every pregnancy is different and every woman has her own unique approach to how she plans to bring her child into the world. My focus as a Doula is that you be given the opportunity to have the labor and delivery that you want. My role is to provide physical and emotional support in whatever capacity is needed to enable mothers to have the birthing experience they desire.
I provide evidence-based information and resources, and we discuss the pros and cons of the options so that you can make informed decisions regarding your care and the care of your baby. I do not judge your decisions or impose any personal preferences. I am trained in a variety of methods and utilize that information in a pro-active approach to set you up for success. Regarding childbirth, DONA International emphasizes, "How will she remember this?" My goal as a Doula is to ensure that when you reflect
on your labor and delivery, you will feel supported, respected, and empowered by the experience.
