"You are constructing your own reality with the choices you make . . . or don't make.  If you really want a healthy pregnancy and joyful birth, and you truly understand that you are the one in control, then you must examine what you have or haven't done so far to create the outcome you want."

Testimonials

Hailey

Having Mitzi as a part of our birth was one of the best decisions we ever made! She was highly recommened by many of our friends who have been with Mitzi and she truly is such an amazing person. Immediatley upon meeting her I knew that she was such and open and caring person with a calm demenor. Mitzi was always very open to any questions I had and always found resources/information for me. She made me feel like family and her level of confidence really shone as she helped me through my labor. Mitzi came to my place and walked me through as my contractions really went into high gear, having my water break and my son born 13 mintues later. With my midwives missing the birth, I was so blessed to have Mitzi there to support me as I was definetley scared! Shes played an amazing role in my experience and I would recommend her to everyone and look forward to having her be apart of my future births!
