Just as a chick knows how to hatch, a baby knows when and how to be born, and a woman knows how to birth.
As a doula, I look forward to walking alongside women as they get to know their inner strength, and learn to trust the process of birth so they can enter motherhood surrounded by a nest of love and support.
"Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life."
"Just as a woman's heart knows how and when to pump, her lungs to inhale, and her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows when and how to give birth."
"Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers--strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength."
"All that is needed for the majority of labor to go well is a healthy, pregnant woman who has loving support in labor, self-confidence, and attendants with infinite patience."
