SACRED WISE WOMAN/MIDWIFERY SUPPORT FOR FREEBIRTHS

Unassisted birth, or freebirth, is intentionally birthing with no professional assistance, and I recognize you have the right to choose this method of birth.  I know many unassisted birthers face judgment, derision, and a refusal to help from birth professionals.  Parents who choose this option take full responsibility for their birth, but that doesn’t mean you don’t want some pregnancy or postpartum services, and I am happy to provide them. I believe that undisturbed birth is best practice. I can blend into the background at a birth and hold incredible space for you while your freebirth. I also understand that even the most invisible sacred wise woman/midwife can still influence the actions of a labouring person, so much so that they are inhibited. Birth is a raw, sacred, vulnerable, intimate, and psychosexual  experience for the birthing person (and if applicable, their partner/s too); it is always a privilege and honour to be invited to share this experience as a sacred wise woman, midwife, or as a friend.

 

​ I am happy to provide prenatal care, newborn exams, newborn health screenings, and postpartum care for individuals and families planning freebirths.

The class costs $450* to be paid between the time of scheduling and the date of the class.
