      Pregnancy and childbirth are natural and sacred occurrences in most woman’s lives. It is  the powerful force of  love that puts the baby in and it is that love which gets the baby out. Prenatal care is more than routine visits with a provider. The cornerstone of prenatal care is the self nurture that a woman provides herself  24 hours a day, seven days a week. Essential elements of prenatal care include; thoughtful attention to the  health of the mind and soul, healthy and fulfilling relationships, eating whole healthy foods (you and your baby are what you eat ), and gentle intentional exercise.

The term midwife comes from latin and means “with woman”.  The relationship between an midwife and her client centers on trust, and continuity of care.  Midwives provide birthing families with resources and information in order to help them make their own informed healthcare decisions.  Midwives empower women throughout their pregnancy, so when birth comes they have trust not only in the birth process, but in themselves and their baby.  A woman’s body is designed to give birth, and babies with their instinctual nature know just when and how to come out!

“WOMEN…ARE STORYTELLERS. THEY ARE NURTURERS…FILLED WITH CREATIVE FORCES WHEN THEY ARE FERTILE, PREGNANT OR BIRTHING. MILLIONS OF YEARS OF BIOLOGY ARE ON THEIR SIDE TO ‘BRING FORTH.’ NOTHING CAN STOP THE POWER BEHIND THAT FORCE, NOT EVEN THE WOMAN HERSELF…SHE IS THE LIVING ESSENCE OF THE FUTURE. SHE IS A HOLY WOMAN AND THERE IS INTELLIGENCE AT WORK IN HER. IT IS SACRED ENERGY.” –SISTER MORNINGSTAR
