Congratulations on your pregnancy and welcome to Natural Birth Doula Services!
Giving birth is an unforgettable miracle even though pregnancy, labor and birth are natural biological events. Giving birth is a woman's most powerful rite of passage. A woman's body is designed to give birth naturally. Birth doulas support and affirm a woman's ability to give birth.
"If the pregnant woman focuses on the mastery of the task in front of her she sees birth akin to climbing a mountain. She doesn't deny that the mountain is there but instead she focuses on how to navigate it. To empower herself she brings along experienced women to help her when the climb is difficult."
Paulina Perez (The Nurturing Touch at Birth)
The natural births of my two sons were the most transformational and empowering events of my life. My first son was born in a hospital (1973) in Massachusetts. My
second son was born at home (1980) in San Diego, California. Both births taught me what I already knew; our bodies know how to give birth and we do it very well! We also remember every detail forever.
Giving birth is a woman's gift to the world. Giving natural birth is a gift to the woman herself. Her experience impacts the rest of her life. It is an honor and a privilege to support birthing mothers and their partners during this amazing and miraculous event. If you are looking for a birth doula to accompany you on your journey please feel free to contact me.
"Choosing natural childbirth means choosing not to add unnecessary risk for mother or baby."
