About Arts of Love Birth Services
My home birth services are devoted to providing comprehensive, holistic care and support throughout the pregnancy, labor, birth, postpartum, and breastfeeding experience for those families choosing home birth. I am committed to creating an environment where a woman and her family feel nurtured, safe and secure, where their personal preferences are respected and their physical and emotional well being are enhanced. I practice “watchful guarding” of the natural process of pregnancy and childbirth, offering sensitive support and gentle encouragement, while intervening only as necessary to ensure the safety and well-being of mother and baby.
I welcome your questions and honor your individual needs and concerns as we aim for you to have a healthful and profoundly positive birth experience. I see pregnancy and birth as sacred and miraculous—a rite of passage into motherhood, a powerful experience that enhances personal growth, inner strength, and deepens family closeness. I view birth as a normal part of family life, and we have confidence in a woman’s ability to grow and birth her baby. I honor a woman’s inner wisdom about her body and desire to labor and birth in her own unique way.
At home, women and their families can truly benefit from the ancient art and sound traditions of genuine midwifery care, that has proven it’s worth around the world and throughout history.
