Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers - strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength."

​                Woman to Mother!

Congratulations! You are going to be MOM!
 From the moment your baby is conceived, everything about who you are changes. You have instantly changed from woman to mother!

In the moment that you become a mother, that little life is dependent upon  you and the choices you make.  Some of those choices will seem simple and easy, yet others will require much research, contemplation,
hardwork and sometimes even tears.
Making the right choice often means that you will be making a decision that others will question and not understand. Ultimately though, it is you and your child that will live with the joys and benefits of your research and hardwork. 

I challenge you as you begin your journey into motherhood, put aside what you think you know about pregnancy and birth. Truly educate yourself on what a healthy pregnancy looks like, and the pure joy that comes from birthing your baby, YOUR WAY!

   Welcome to the amazing world of   

            Motherhood !
