What if I want a medicated birth?
Let's do it! My goal is not to persuade you to have a certain type of birth. My goal is to provide you with the best birthing experience possible. In a medicated birth, I will support you through early labor until you say it is time for medication. Then, after you receive the epidural, I will help you reposition, manage any side effects, and continue to support you emotionally through your labor.
