My sole focus during your labor and birth is to be your constant supporter and advocate. I will guide you through your labor, never leaving your side, coaching you through techniques to calm and comfort you. I will concentrate on your comfort, freeing your partner to be able to concentrate and support you.
I recognize birth as a key experience that you will remember all of your life and assist you to memorialize all of its amazing moments. I have a deep understanding of the physiology of birth and your emotional needs during labor. While the medical staff will often need to leave your side to tend to their other patients, I will stay by your side through your entire labor.
I provide you with emotional support, physical comfort measures such as massage, position changes, water therapy, visualization as well as helping you get the information you need to make informed decisions, facilitating communication between you, your partner and your clinical care providers.
