Babies have a way of being born into this world. We women have a way of being born into mothers.
In the moment of birth there is a great release, one that we anticipate through pregnancy and labor.
We anticipate through struggle, fear, exhaustion, work and much mystery.
We anticipate through primal desires, love, support, letting go and taking hold.
We anticipate through a biological cascade of hormones and an innate determination that prepares us for motherhood and bonding with our new family.
We reach down, catch our babies and bring them to our chest. We cry. We cry knowing we feel our power, knowing we trusted our bodies, knowing we traveled to a space that requires more strength and fearlessness than we will ever experience again. We are forever a mother. This is our rite of passage.
Artemisia Midwifery provides primary midwifery care in an out-of-hospital setting. We are licensed autonomous providers keeping birth safe and revered. We provide evidence based care, all while having a deep respect for the mother-baby dyad. Informed choice is important to us and because of this, everything we do is with informed consent. We want to support you in your choices. We want you to thrive as a mother.
In a nut shell…
