As a Certified Professional Midwife and birth doula I believe that every birthing person has the right to make their own choices regarding their body and their birth. People must receive evidence-based, unbiased information during pregnancy and birth in order to make informed decisions. Birth is a normal and healthy occurrence in a person’s life, yet each one is unique and amazing. The normalcy of birth must be trusted by the client, the care provider, and their support team. The amazement of birth must be respected by holding a safe space for the birthing person and family to honor and fully experience the enriching process and life that birth brings.
