During labor I support birthing families by facilitating a calm birthing environment, guiding the birthing person's own intrinsic wisdom to employ their bodies, breath, and voice during labor, and by holding space for anything that arises, all in the effort to allow their unique birthing process to unfold productively. Clients can expect a gentle, centered presence and skillful guidance toward mindful birthing.
