Just what the world needs, right? But this one is mine–and that is something in itself. Talk about teaching an old dog new tricks! And now a BLOG!! -What could possibly be next? Here’s to technology–properly applied, of course.
I hope the information you find here will spur you on toward planning the safest, happiest, and most satisfying birth you can have. I believe this is important and, in its own small way, will change the world. Imagine–if every baby were thoroughly and lovingly welcomed, and every birth the intimate, private, and loving affair it should be. Perhaps our imperfect world would lean more toward perfection, at least for those few precious moments. There’s no doubt in my mind that the birth of a child is a highly significant event in the life of the child, the mother, and the family. We are immensely grateful when it can happen this way, in the calm and tender setting of the family home. And yet we are just as grateful even when it doesn’t. Our focus is not on the experience, but on the totality of this fundamental change in the world: a new person. It is my honor to witness this more often than most, and to be in awe each and every time. Thank you to my clients for that honor.
