I have seen it time and time again, mom's in labor who feel like their voice isn't being heard or that decisions are being made for them, without them. Mom's who are lost and confused about the entire labor and delivery process, who then begin to feel defeated and are forced to comply to whatever options, or the lack there of, that are placed in from of them. They do not know that they have options, that they can say no, and that they own their pregnancy. They own their pregnancy, not their OB, not their Midwife, not the nurses or the staff.  

Those feelings stop here, with you and all the moms who are going to read this eBook. Once you are aware of your options and what to expect, you are now in the driver seat and can decide what is best for you and your family. My ultimate goal is to take you from feeling lost, scared, and confused to empowered, confident and ready to take on all things motherhood, labor/delivery and postpartum.

I want you to be able to face your fears and the fears that are projected onto you, with so much confidence and education that your ideal birth experience has no choice but to play out exactly as you imagined.
