Birth marks the transition into parenthood, it shows us fundamental parts of ourselves that were hidden, and dissolves that which is unimportant.
How we birth matters.
How we arrive into motherhood and fatherhood can profoundly affect us and our children for years to come.
Throughout our time together we focus on helping birth partners to feel comfortable and confident to help and support women in birth.
