Not sure what to expect with your birth?
I’m here to help you feel supported, informed, and listened to.
Something I hear a lot from parents is that they wish they had known more before labour started – that the books they read or the classes they took didn’t prepare them for birth. I want to change that. I want to help you feel confident as you come closer to meeting your baby by keeping you educated, supported, and informed. I want you to feel aware of your choices and possible outcomes. I want you to feel prepared for when baby arrives and as you enter the fourth trimester and your postpartum.
My Values & Beliefs
The final choice no matter what the options, always comes down to YOU. Knowing all of your options, the benefits and risks (all of them!), and knowing that you can give refusal, lets YOU take back your power. I am here to make sure you feel like you have the knowledge, support, and time to make these decisions.
Research shows that having continuous support from someone who is not medical staff, and not friends/family leads to better birth outcomes. Having someone who is there just for YOU (and your partner!) to support and focus solely on you helps to alleviate stress, anxiety, and any fears you may have. I am here to increase your feelings of empowerment, personal strength, and being listened to and understood.
Holistic Care and Evidence Based Practices
The core of my philosophy is following evidence based care recommendations. Knowing what these are, why they came about, and how you can receive evidence based care is the pillar of a positive birth & postpartum experience. Holistic Care is also a key aspect to receiving positive care as it looks at you as a whole and helps you have many of your needs met with non-medical options.
