What We Believe

We believe in birth. Pregnancy and birth are normal life events influenced by a woman's physical, emotional and spiritual life. They hold the possibility for inner growth and transformation. Pregnancy and birth are a family's own experience, a woman-led process, an intense and intimate journey. We believe in choice. Each woman has her own criteria for where she feels safe and well-grounded to give birth. This intuitive sense of where it "feels right" to give birth is important to the unimpeded path of labor and the safe birth of her child. We support a woman's right to choose where and with whom she gives birth.
