“Dear Joanne, I want to thank you for a truly gratifying experience. When I met you I was uncertain and felt somewhat Isolated in my decision to have an alternative birth. You did far more than come over one day to help with the birth of a baby, you gave me the confidence to allow me to be able to trust in my body and the guidance to prepare for white lie ahead. Over the months that I met with you I felt empowered in my choices and the people around me came to understand I was making the best decisions for me and my baby. I am delighted with my Amelia and look forward to guiding her through childhood and the world around her.”
