Serving: Maricopa
Offering: Childbirth Education;Labor Support or Doula; Parenting; Bible Study; Crisis Pregnancy
Comment: I am a doula and childbirth educator, the support I offer for pregnant and laboring women in and around the Maricopa community uses the word of God. I believe that through Jesus all things are possible (Matthew 19:26) and that God made our bodies to support the process of giving birth naturally.
I respect every woman's choice to birth the way that feels the most comfortable for her and her baby, no matter what her religious preference or her history.
I am a firm advocate of becoming educated in decisions; decisions concerning your health physically and mentally and that of your baby. I recommend reading up on the way you would like to give birth; if it’s naturally, medicated, a un/planned cesarean, CBAC (Cesarean Birth After Cesarean), or VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean). There are risks and benefits to all of these choices.
Choices made by fear are not educated choices. "You only fear the unknown or past bad experiences... Fear and faith don't operate together..."; For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline. (2Timothy 1:7)
I became a doula and childbirth educator to empower women and educate them on their choices of labor and delivery. I would love to help you and your family in this very special occasion.
Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, a conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 (ASV)
