The Loudoun Times Mirror featured local birth workers in the article below as they explored what the culture of birth is like in Loudoun county. I was featured talking about the role of doulas and the state of birth in the Metro area.
I was interviewed by Rebecca Sheir of NPR's Metro Connection about the role of doulas, choosing midwifery care and my choice in planning a home births for the births of two of my children. We talked about the difference between midwives and doulas and what each one specifically does. As a doula, I do doctors. I do midwives. I do home birth and birth center birth. I do hospital birth. I do medicated birth and natural birth. I do c-sections. Ultimately, it's about choice and options, and I will support you in all your decisions.
