The Care I Offer

Philosophy

I am committed to the belief that pregnancy and birth is a normal, natural process that a woman's body knows how to do. I believe that in the nature of the childbearing years lies an incredible opportunity for growth, transformation, and deep joy. I choose to provide care that fosters these beliefs.

Although I do use and appreciate some obstetrical technology when indicated, I believe that routine use of this technology often interferes with a woman's natural ability to give birth. In my experience, the path to a natural birth and a healthy baby starts with promoting good health and open communication in pregnancy and with allowing women to birth in an environment where they feel safe, supported, and fully empowered.
