I am no happier than when I am awoken during the night, get in my car, and make my way to the front door of your home. I will quietly enter and join you as you labor. We will work together, using active labor techniques, various positions, and the benefit of water to facilitate your birth. Above all, your instincts and personal choices will be respected. I will find great pleasure in placing your baby in your waiting arms, in assisting you or your husband in cutting the cord that has sustained his life.
The sweetest moment will be when I tuck you and your new dear one in bed, kiss your cheek and leave you in the loving hands of your family to begin falling in love with your baby.
Our journey will have begun much sooner. I will provide prenatal visits for you throughout your pregnancy, and as I keep a watchful eye on your growing baby, I hope we will become trusted friends.
I would be privileged to serve you in this manner, as you journey your sacred path to motherhood.

Read Giselle Bundchen's feelings about her own home birth:
"Giving birth was the most intense and life-changing experience of my life. I am blessed to have been able to have a home birth surrounded by love , where I was able to feel safe. It was a powerful experience. I never felt so vulnerable but so strong at the same time. It was amazing to experience my body become free to do what it was made to do by allowing my mind and my body to let go and be free to experience the changes taking place within… I was just there… focusing on my breathing and relaxing the best that I could… so present, to witness the biggest miracle in my life happen before my very own eyes. To give life to another being, what a gift!
When he finally was placed into my arms, I looked into his precious eyes and felt an overwhelming, unconditional love. I felt a huge sense of accomplishment. ”We did it!” ”We did it together!” He and I. I never felt so complete and empowered in my life."
