I stand for the right to birth with autonomy and support. For women, birthing people, and their providers to trust their bodies and their babies throughout the birth process. Our culture too often sees birth as a medical emergency and not as a normal, sacred experience that all of us have gone through. It’s the thing that all of us have in common- we have all been born.
As a homebirth midwife, I imagine a world where birth is normal, where birthing bodies are always respected, and where newborn babies are treated with gentleness, care, and humanity.
