Our Philosophy

my philosophy

We believe birth is a natural process in which we have the ability to work instinctively to do what our bodies have been designed to do. We believe our bodies know how to carry, labor, birth, and breastfeed, and that every woman deserves the opportunity to do so if she wishes.

This is your pregnancy, your birth, and your journey, not ours. We are here to honor your wishes and desires pertaining to your labor and delivery.

We support your right to birth in whatever environment you wish and will be happy to assist you in the environment most comfortable to you, whether that be in the home, in a hospital, or in a birthing center.

Every woman and her family should be informed about her options and rights surrounding birth, and we will work to ensure you are as informed as possible.

We believe every woman and her family is unique, and our role as your doula is to learn about you and your family, support your values, desires, preferences, and needs so as to provide the individualized care you deserve.

We believe a doula has the responsibility to help women manage labor pain, and help her cope with the mental, emotional, and physical impacts of her labor and delivery.

All women, including survivors of trauma, have the power and permission to birth without fear and the right to have a powerful and therapeutic birthing experience.

We believe our role as doulas is to support relationships, and support a partner’s role in the labor and delivery process.

We practice from a social justice perspective and are honored to serve all types of families regardless of race, religion, class, marital status, sexual orientation, or gender expression.
