I'll never forget the first time I talked to Hannah on the phone in May of 2020. She was funny with a southern accent and said, "I've heard you're probably full, but you're what I want, so I figured it was worth a shot." and then she laughed.  She was the matriarch of...

Iris and her husband, might just be the sweetest and most in love clients that I've ever had. They were always positive and willing to learn every thing about birth that I could teach them. They hired me early on and came armed with questions for each meeting, they too...

We just kept moving her trying to find the best position. However, we were seeing signs that would prove this baby was as big as everyone had predicted. The baby would come way down and with each contraction it would slowly go way back up in position. While rocking in...
