My Philosophy and Qualifications
Every mother deserves to approach
her birth with confidence in the fact that
her body is designed to birth her baby, and she deserves to come
away from her birth feeling that it went as well as it possibly could have.
It is well-known that mothers remember their births, often in great detail, for the rest of their lives; it is also known that the feelings a woman walks away with from her birth can greatly affect her postpartum and mothering. To that end, it is my mission to do all within the scope of my work to support birthing mothers and their partners in every way I can: physically, emotionally, informationally, and spiritually. In this way I can help you make your birth an unforgettable birth in the very best way possible!
I believe every birth is a sacred event.
I believe in the inherent God-given dignity of each member of the client's family, born and unborn and that it is my duty to work to protect the dignity of your family and your birth.
I believe that we can make our birth plans, but that God also has a plan for our births and desires to play a role in the bringing forth of the children He has blessed us with.
I believe it is possible to us to advocate for our wishes and rights in childbirth and work with our bodies as they were designed to give birth, yet at the same time experience our births as an opportunities to surrender to God's will in their overall trajectory and in those circumstances which are simply beyond our control.
In every birth
a mother mirrors Christ's Paschal Mystery
as she bears witness with her body
to Jesus' words,
"This is my body, given for you."
