Embrace the Discomfort of Labor

Labor transforms you on every level of your being - turning you into a parent and giving you the power, self-reliance and confidence to care for a newborn. Most women have some fear or concern as their labor approaches, yet the naturally unfolding process actually enhances both your safety and the safety of your baby. Although labor is designed to be challenging, it is also designed to be completely doable.

Rebecca Price-WoodMidwife, CPM, NHCM
I have been a midwife at the births of over 300 mama-baby pairs. It seems unfathomable to me that this could be true, because this means I have known, cared for, learned from, and have been shaped by these six hundred… and hundreds more family members.

I have been blessed to be involved with welcoming babies since the unmedicated hospital birth of my own firstborn daughter in 2001. The empowering experience of birthing her into the hands of my midwife opened my eyes to the amazing strength of birth and instilled in me a lifelong awe that was contagious.
