What Kind of Births Do I Attend?

I often get asked, "What kind of births do you attend?"

You want to know the types of births I attend?  I attend the births my clients desire.

I'm here to support YourBest birth.  So, that could be a peaceful home birth, it could be your scheduled induction, it might be at one of the many Fort Worth birth centers, it could be your hospital birth with a planned epidural, or it could be a scheduled c-section.  It doesn't matter to me.

I am a doula.  I support the birthing woman and her family.  I'm not there to judge.  I'm not there to advocate.  I'm there to be by your side every step of the way supporting you as you make your best decisions.  

No, I won't side-eye you if you feel you need an epidural even though you wanted to give un-medicated birth a try.  I might remind you of your birth plan and suggest a position change...or not, if that's what we've discussed.

No, I won't advise you to avoid a suggested induction... because it's not my birth.  It's yours and I trust that you, as a grown woman with a mind of your own, can make your own best decisions.  I can provide you solid, evidence based information if you ask for it, but I won't shove it down your throat... because that's not my job. 

Your birth experience will be a story you'll tell for the rest of your life.  I pride myself in offering expert and compassionate care because YourBest birth matters!
