THE LIFE ON THE INSIDE STORY
As a very young girl, the passion of babies, pregnancy and birth was present! What an honor to be with you in this miraculous journey. Thank you.
My philosophy as your doula is very simple. I want to meet you where you are!
In my personal experience we chose to have a homebirth. And wait… wait… wait… don’t jump to conclusions. Read on ;)
I experienced in my birth profession several ways to give birth. One of those choices was giving birth at home. I saw how women labored so comfortable and beautifully at home and also the liberty to move freely, eat nutritiously, go to sleep and get a newly formed family tucked into their own bed right after the birth with help around!
Having my husband become comfortable with having a homebirth was important to me. How did we do this? He attended interviews with several different midwives, talked with other homebirth daddies, chatted about the pros and cons of different births that had taken place, etc…
The support of our homebirth midwife was incredible! She was absolutely confident in all areas and each circumstance. We’ve had a couple of beautiful homebirths! Three boys! It was everything I had ever dreamed of for my personal births! We were both very fulfilled and satisfied with them.
Do I believe homebirthing is for everyone? Absolutely not! Women will labor where they feel most comfortable… and for me personally that was at home! Do I think others that do not give birth at home are failures? Absolutely not!
Being these were my personal births… I had in mind what I preferred! For you… that is your decision. What do you prefer? Check into your options and the pros and cons that are involved!
