My name is Vanessa, and I believe in you!
The childbearing year can be so exciting, but it can be a little overwhelming sometimes. Right now you might be feeling like there's a lot of information to absorb about best practices for pregnancy and birth. All it takes is one simple web search to fall down the rabbit hole of pregnancy dos and don'ts, scary birth stories and parenting "gurus" giving you advice you didn't ask for. Everyone has an opinion about what you should be doing, and most of the time it's completely different than what the last person said!
So, when there's no "right" way to do things and you're feeling stressed out before the baby is even here, what's a new parent supposed to do?
Assemble your team, get educated, and trust your gut.
I started Paper Crane Birth Services because I am committed to the elimination of self-doubt in birthing families. I believe every parent deserves access to nonjudgmental, evidence-based information and resources so they can make choices for pregnancy and birth based on proven research and what they believe is best for their family. I pride myself in facilitating a safe space for my clients to ask questions and learn about their options. My ultimate goal is for my clients to feel prepared, supported, and confident in their ability to handle pregnancy, labor, and birth. I achieve this goal in two ways: engaging and unbiased prenatal education, and enthusiastic and continuous doula support. Read more about the services I offer below.
all are welcome here.
