Childbirth is a normal physiological function that is a family-centered event. It is a time for celebration and empowerment. Midwifery care is a partnership between parents and their midwife. Sage Creek Midwifery is dependent on involving the parents in the decision-making of their care and in formulating the birth that they desire.
I bring to this partnership my years of study, my experience of hundreds of births in a multitude of settings, my trust of the process and my deep caring for mothers, babies and families. My clients bring to the relationship their own knowing of themselves and their bodies, their life experiences, their hopes, dreams and intuitions. As partners we bring a commitment to work together to support pregnancy and birth in the healthiest most holistic way possible.
Spending time together with open communication helps to ensure that parent’s wishes and needs can better be met. Sage Creek Midwifery is committed to assisting in a safe passage for both the mother and baby without unnecessary interventions. If complications arise that cannot be handled at home, the mother will be referred to other appropriate health care providers.
“If women lose the right to say where and how they birth their children, then they will have lost something that’s as dear to life as breathing.”
