“Giving birth can be the most empowering experience of a lifetime — an initiation into a new dimension of mind-body awareness.” — Ina May Gaskin
Every person deserves the opportunity to have their desired birth, and they should have support through the entire process, no matter the circumstances…
Whatever the vision, we all need to educate ourselves about our bodies, about interventions and what they mean for comfort, mobility and health. Every parent should go into birth feeling empowered to bring a child into this world, knowing all of their options and understanding the depth of each option.
Proper support and education is imperative to experiencing positive growth in our culture and medical system, and I look forward to supporting you through your journey, in whatever way that may be…
“If I don’t know my options, I don’t have any.”Diane Korte
