It’s past time that I wrote this. If I had written it 5 years ago when I first got into this world of pregnancy, birth and beyond, it would have looked different…..and I suppose there is a chance that it may look slightly different 5 years from now too. Hard to say….but right now after all that I have learned and all that I have experienced, these are my beliefs. When I am hired by a client, I am with them to help them have the best pregnancy and/or be the best parent according to what they see that as. I do this by listening, relaying information and letting them know where to find information to help them make their own decisions. I am in no way there to tell them what to do or what decisions to make. I really believe that we each make our own decisions and should be able to own those decisions.
I think that the greatest thing we can do for soon to be and new parents is to give them the power to believe in themselves. They know their bodies and babies the best and as a result are the best person to make the decisions involved in their care. I am just there to respect, encourage and empower them while they do so. ❤
