Informed Decision Making

 If you have ever felt pushed into a decision about your care or your baby’s care or if you feel like there’s more to the story but you’re not sure what, you may like to have a consultation with a midwife to discuss your situation and your options. 

Simply put, a home birth midwife approaches every discussion from the point of view that you need and deserve all the information regarding the issue AND a venue to ask questions without made to feel stupid or careless for wondering or asking.  We believe best outcomes are achieved when people are well-informed and well-supported.

Consultations are designed for people planning a hospital birth and who want more information about their options or how the birthing process works.  YOU are the one having the baby and YOU get to decide.  

All topics available to WA residents due to Kristin’s licensing.  Non-clinical topics available to residents of other states.
