Tami’s Philosophy on Birth
“I belive that the process of childbirth is a normal physiological process, perfectly designed by nature, to bring babies into the world. It is a process that is instinctive and often has it’s own rhythm and pace which should be respected and honored. This process if often best when left to its own, with as little interference as possible. I believe that when we educate women on the power within the birth process, we empower them to make decisions regarding their birth. Women are to be active in the decisions made throughout their pregnancy and birth, when properly informed and encouraged to follow their own insticts, women now become ‘givers’ of birth, over ‘receivers’ of what society states birth should be. I believe that birth can transform women and is as much a process through mental health as through physical. Birth can trigger positve, as well as negative emotions for some women and these things should be addressed before labor. Birth can be a wonderful time of healing and transformation when women are allowed to go within and truly engage in the birthing process.” ~Tami
Tami’s background in Mental Health, Childbirth, Labor & Delivery and the development of families allows her to confidently address how birth has as much, if not more, of an affect on a woman’s mental health as much as her physical health. Additionally, we have amazing therapist that we are working with that are available to address the ongong theraputic needs of each individual we serve. Birth is to be embraced, not something we fear. Sometimes this may call for us to have a mental health check up as we prepare to birth our babies. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
