Ophelia’s Surrendered Birth
Ophelia’s beautiful mama reached out to me early in her pregnancy, seeking a homebirth after a cesarean six years before.

At our first meeting, B expressed that she wanted her partner and her mother as her birth team, and they were both wonderfully involved and supportive throughout her pregnancy and birth.
