“The whole point of woman-centered birth is the knowledge that a woman is the birth power source. She may need, and deserve, help, but in essence, she always had, currently has, and will have the power.” ~Heather McCue
The baby in their mother’s womb has only his/her instincts and maybe the mother’s emotions to rely on. The mother however is in a different position and has many sources of information. A doula is a valuable source of information for the mother preparing for the birth and a source of support in labor by helping the mother to do her best towards the fulfilling of her own vision of the birth. The birth can be empowering and inspiring for the woman as well as for the child. I would like to see more empowered women and happy babies on our planet, therefore I decided to begin my doula career.
