I love everything birth. People think it's because I love babies. I do love babies but that's not it at all. For me, it's about supporting a woman as she's born anew each time –into someone a little wilder, freer and sometimes more ferocious because she's let in on a secret. She's more herself than she's ever been, and it's not always who she thought she was. With each birth she's let in on this secret in a new way. To help her along on this road is like witnessing a baby bird struggle and then take its first flight. It's immense and powerful and beautiful. I've been that baby bird twice, and still I stagger at every birthing woman's strength. It's one of the most magnificent things I've ever seen.
Having been an active birth doula since 2007, I've helped hundreds of birds take flight.
