What I Do
My specialty is helping women get through natural, unmedicated, vaginal childbirth, whenever possible. I prefer to join my clients at home once labor starts, helping with comfort measures and providing emotional and psychological support.
Laboring at home for as long as possible allows mothers to feel safe and comfortable, which, in turn, increases oxytocin levels naturally, often resulting in a shorter duration of labor.
I encourage moms to relax, breathe and let go, and to allow their primal mothering instincts to kick in. You know exactly what to do and I trust and believe in your body's ability to give birth.
Please Note: I am currently only supporting mothers through out-of-hospital birth.
"Birth feels like a supernatural force taking over your body. If you resist the force, childbirth will be difficult. But if you surrender to the force, you will find ease in your childbirth experience"
