We believe that pregnancy, labor, and postpartum can be vulnerable times for parents and you should feel supported throughout this period, no matter how you give birth. In addition to helping low-risk women, we specialize in helping women who are preparing for a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean), or VBAMC (Vaginal Birth After Multiple Cesareans), women with high-risk pregnancies, as well as women who have diabetes during pregnancy (Type 1, Type 2, or Gestational). We help educate you about your birth options and help you feel comfortable and excited to give birth, even if you are classified as high-risk. As Jane Weideman said, “Giving birth should be your greatest achievement, not your greatest fear.”

“There’s a secret in our culture, and it’s not that birth is painful. It’s that women are strong.” –Laura Stavoe Harm

We love guiding birth partners to help them be involved in the birth experience, to their comfort level. We help them to feel like they can help you through labor, and be just as involved as you are, by guiding them in ways to help make you comfortable during pregnancy and labor, and even postpartum. Your birth partner has an intimate knowledge of you and we have an intimate knowledge of birth; together, we make the ultimate team. We will help them to feel included every step of the way.

“In this way, every birth is a natural birth: each of us is part of nature, not separate from it, and nature is always stunning in its variety. Your birth, then, is a part of the natural world, however it unfolds.” -Lauralyn Curtis, The Curtis Method

During our prenatal visits, we teach you about ALL of your options during pregnancy and birth. We look forward to helping you achieve your goals for your upcoming birth. We are very familiar with natural remedies for many pregnancy ailments. If you prefer natural remedies over medicinal, we can suggest some options so that you can bring it up with your doctor or midwife.

If you don’t already have a doctor, midwife, or birth facility that is going to work with you to achieve your goals for this birth, we can help you find one. We have worked hard to establish good working relationships with care providers in the area and  can help you find the one that will help you to have YOUR ideal birth. Regardless of where or how you choose to birth, we can assist you in your goals and help you have a peaceful birth day.
