Whenever and however you intend to give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life.
Ina May Gaskin
Having a homebirth was the most exhilarating, liberating and empowering time of my life. To be surrounded and supported with love, peace and confidence was, for me, the best way to bring my children into the world.
Since then, a spark was lit inside my soul. I have longed for all my birthing sisters to know what power and capabilities they hold within themselves. To truly connect with their bodies and babies, to completely surrender, go deep within, and reach beyond all they think is possible.
I know each birthing woman is capable of bringing her baby into the world in the manner she desires. I trust in birth. I trust in women’s bodies. I feel called to be an empowering and guiding light in our community of birthing women.
Birth is sacred. And every woman deserves an empowered birth where her inner wisdom is honored, her choices are respected, and her journey to becoming a mother is witnessed.
You got this, Mama. I believe in you.
