  • The belief that a woman’s sense of security, confidence and emotions have a profound effect on her birth outcome.
  • It is my goal to create an atmosphere in which her privacy, autonomy, and emotional vulnerability is protected.
  • Women deserve support for any birth option she may choose and strive to provide her with the current research necessary to make educated decisions regarding such options. There is no one right way to give birth.
  • Birth is a monumental life event, worthy of consideration, respect and preparation.
  • VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) is safer than routine repeat cesareans.
  • Belief in the intimacy of birth where fathers best serve as loving partners and protectors. They should be free to experience the journey and participate at their own comfort level.
