Labor & Birth Support
"Deep within every woman is the ability to birth. When she has confidence in her own abilities, the encouragement and freedom to tap into her innate wisdom, and has the loving support of family, friends and professionals who believe this too, she will truly have a satisfying birth experience." - Gerri Ryan
I believe that birth is a profound rite of passage that every person who gives birth should be able to experience with being surrounded by options, love, and support. To witness individuals give birth in a manner that affirms their dignity and power and to see babies born in an environment that honors their being is a high honor. I believe in birth. I believe when the birthing person is given a supportive and safe environment they are more able to tap into their instinctual wisdom and birth unhindered. I pledge to do my very best for you, to be alert and attentive to all aspects of your well-being, and to do my utmost to see that your child emerges into an atmosphere that is nurturing for the whole family
