“It is said that women in labor leave their bodies…they travel to the stars to collect the souls of their babies, and return to this world, together.”  – Anonymous

Birth is an all encompassing experience. A woman must turn off her mind, and release control, so that her body and baby can work together. Losing all sense of time, a laboring mother has to turn inward as her body and identity transform. As much as the caterpillar retreats to the cocoon to transform to a butterfly, a women must leave behind her singular identity to evolve into becoming a mother.

Let me preserve this journey for you. The journey of brining your baby earth side; of your heart cracking wide open to expand in a way you have never known before; of the love and support surrounding you as you courageously transform from woman to mother.
