Birth Freedom Ina May Gaskin Huffington Post

I just read a great article on Huffington Post from Ina May Gaskin with important information we all need to hear. As a doula, I am so happy to be able to help educate families so that they can make the choice that is best for them.

Penny Simkin(doula and founder of DONA International) study about moms memories of their birth experiences suggested to us that when a woman feels that she is autonomous and able to make her own decisions without force, she is most pleased with her birth experience. Penny is also the author of a study that tells us that a mothers birth experience is not just about getting the baby out. It is a momentous day that matters for the rest of her life, whether positive or negative.

So yes, birth choices matter.
