What We Believe

We believe that birth is safe, natural, and good.

We believe that women possess the innate ability to birth and birth well, and that ability should be recognized, honored, and valued.

We believe that birth partners are strong, capable and powerful.

We believe that knowledge is power and that all families should have access to unbiased, evidence-based research when planning their births.

We believe that there is no “best” way to birth. This is your body, your baby, your best birth.

All women should have access to a doula if they want one.

We believe that birth is a life-altering moment in the story of a woman, a memory that she will carry with her for the rest of her life. As such, it should be valued and protected.

Above all, we believe that birth matters. How we enter the world matters. The way in which we bring forth new life matters. It all matters deeply and we’re proud to be a part of such a profound event in the lives of families and of our world.
