- The Gentle Art of Midwifery

A place where everyone
Honors you and the work you will do in labor,
Speaks quietly and moves slowly and gently,
Respects your need to be spontaneous ~
to eat, drink, make sounds, move around, cry, shout, laugh.
Treats you and your baby as fully conscious and sensitive beings.
Giving Birth is as intimate as lovemaking
You will need privacy and support and tenderness
Labor is not a spectator sport
Your partner is not your "Coach"
It's the journey of a lifetime for your baby and you
Don't settle for a typical birth
Find out more... homebirth.... birth centers...
Safe alternatives to epidurals... Seek out a midwife
Arrange for a labor companion / doula to stay with you....
Protect your baby and empower yourself!
