Thus says the LORD: "Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk ye in it, and therein you will find rest for your souls." - Jeremiah 6:16
For centuries and centuries, women have been birthing their babies at home surrounded by trusted women, female neighbors, friends, relatives and if especially blessed… a trained midwife.
Midwives have been trusted healers in their communities, ushering in life and ministering to families in death. The respected role of the midwife was well established for thousands of years, they have been celebrated in art throughout history… So what has happened? How did we move so far away from this sweet tradition to what is so traumatic for many families … a medical birth?
I want to be a part of bringing back this cultural norm. I trust birth. I trust your body to function as it was created. I trust you.
Please contact me for a complimentary interview where we can meet and discuss your particular needs and desires for the birth of your baby.
