My Philosophy of Birth

So much of television and media portray birth to be a big scary event.  When in reality birth can be peaceful, and empowering regardless of the setting or choices each person makes for their birth.  Home or hospital, I am happy to support you and whatever choices you make for your birth.  I have worked with several families who are high risk, are attempting a Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC), or have scheduled Cesarean Birth.  I also supports individuals who have a history of abuse, and people who have chosen to adopt their baby to another family.
