Welcome to Birth You Desire’s Blog! 

In my 19 years as a birth worker I have learned that as science and healthcare changes, our birth choices are changing too.  No matter where you will birth or who you will birth with, our bodies are designed to do this amazing work. Each of us should honor the innate wisdom in women’s bodies and the natural process. And yet sometimes, we need assistance. In those cases medical intervention may become necessary.

The purpose of this blog if to inspire families to better understand how their choices affect well-being, I hope you enjoy it!
