It is a time of blessing where women recognize how the Creator designed their bodies to experience pregnancy, labor and postpartum. For them to realize it is a normal life process that is not only physical, but also a holistic event encompassing all of our whole being; mind, body and spirit.
Women are made to have children. Our bodies are fearfully & wonderfully made, and if you are a healthy woman, having a home or cottage birth is a great choice for your pregnancy care!
Oftentimes our culture paints a picture of birth as a broken system in our bodies, needing to be fixed. This is not true. Birth works best when left unhindered in the comfort of your own home. Your body is able to relax, and let go – and do the work that is called “labor”. I am there to guard your space and have a watchful eye and make sure that all is going well and you and baby remain safe.
We are located in Strasburg, Virginia. We serve women along Interstate 81 (north and south), up to an hour and half distance from my home. We are covering most of North Shenandoah Valley including Winchester, Woodstock, Front Royal, Berryville, and anywhere in-between! Exceptions are made on occasion.
This course discusses the options available to you and the ways they can affect the labor process in an honest and accurate way. You will discover the comfort measures that are most likely to work for you, and explore the decisions you will need to make as you plan for your baby’s birth. Discover the common side effects of pain relief medications and the choices you have using alternative methods to reduce pain naturally.
This class series will give you the spiritual nourishment often times overlooked in childbirth education. Great for first-time and experienced parents looking for new insight and inspiration!
