BEFORE YOUR SESSION
To book your birth session 20% (non-refundable) is due along with a signed contract to reserve your date. I meet all of my clients for an in-person meeting at 36-weeks. At this meeting, we start to get to know one another better. it’s an opportunity for you to ask me any questions or voice any concerns you may still have. We’ll go over your birth plan and my birth client questionnaire. The remaining balance is due at this time.
DURING YOUR SESSION
I generally strive to be like a cat in the room: present, but not intrusive. I’m not usually an active participant in the birth – while I do hope to contribute to the caring, supportive energy surrounding the laboring family, and I will step in and offer to help if needed (I will of course fill your waterbottles, microwave your heat pads, and fetch the midwives/nurse. It’s not my role to be a stated presence. Instead, I’m there to document what unfolds, as it unfolds, in as unobtrusive as a way as possible.
