That the mother/baby dyad is the foremost authority and expert in each pregnancy and birth.
That birth belongs to women and birthing people. Not doctors, not midwives, not hospitals, and not the government.
That birth is powerful, transformative, and spiritual, and that it has the potential to change the world.
My decision to only attend home births was not an easy one to make. It required a lot of thoughtful consideration and soul searching. But ultimately, I realized that it is the only choice that is aligned with my truth because there is a fundamental difference between my own philosophy of birth and the way that the medical model practices. I believe this decision was necessary for me in order to build a sustainable business and to maintain a thriving physical and mental state so that I can give the very best of me to my clients.
Doulas cultivate intimate, sincere relationships with their clients. There must be a high level of trust, comfort, and shared values between them in order for the relationship to flourish and be beneficial. I am independent of the system and purposely choose not to be certified by an established organization. This allows me the freedom to serve you in the ways that you desire, and with only your interests in mind. I offer myself as an experienced companion and guide, walking beside you as you navigate the extraordinary transformation of birth..
