Philosophy and Comments
Birth is a normal part of life, and I am commited to educate anyone who will listen that the art of midwifery lives on, and that midwives must remain a viable influence to ensure the future of healthy babies and satisfied parnets in their role of raising the future generations of human beings. The Bible admonishes us to train up a child the way that he should be, and when he is older, he will not depart from it. I believe that begins in the womb. Birth is not an illness, but a miraculous family event that deserves preservation though skilled, qualified helpers called midwives.
