You Story Matters!
Let all that you do be done in love.
1 Corinthians 14:16
I believe that how you remember the birth of your child becomes an important part of you, and studies show that women carry these stories very close to their hearts for the rest of their lives. I want to be there for you to make sure that you feel seen and heard throughout your entire birth experience. I want to make sure your wishes are met whenever it is possible and safe to do so. I want you to feel you were informed and in control the entire time. This way, when you look back at the birth of your child, you will feel empowered
and that feeling will go with you for the rest of your life.
How do I help you have a good birth story?
I believe that a satisfying birth begins in pregnancy. During our prenatal meeting and phone calls, we will go over healthy habits that will prepare you for birth, and I will also coach you through having a solid relationship with your care provider during pregnancy, so that there is open communication if unexpected circumstances arise. Then, of course, I will be there with you during labor & delivery & immediately postpartum, offering emotional support and guidance. I am well-trained in a variety of comfort measures and techniques to help you through the more difficult parts of your labor. Afterwards, we will meet again, when you are ready, to process your birth story together. I will also keep track of the events of your labor & birth and present that timeline to you after the birth.
