I see birth as a normal, healthy physical, social, and emotional
process, and I expect it to be so throughout your experience with me.
However I recognize that complications can arise during pregnancy and
birth, and when they do it is my job to restore normalcy when
possible, and when not possible, manage the complication or get you to
an appropriate medical care provider and continue to support you.
Most important of all, I believe *you* should be in control. I'll
you information on all of your options, and then support your
decisions. Each birth is unique. I will work hard to make this birth
exactly the experience you want it to be.
I believe your relationship with me is very significant and can impact
your birth experience. It is important to me that you are comfortable
with me. I hope we will become good friends through your pregnancy.
