Chelsea’s mission statement: I believe that having a voice in your birth experience is a human right. I believe in supporting a birth giver’s vision, and helping them advocate for an experience that matches their vision as closely as is reasonable. I believe all kinds of births can be “natural” and all birth preferences come from a valid place. Beyond this, I believe every pregnant person deserves an ally who truly wants to hear what they have to say, who enjoys spending time answering questions, and who can lend strength, confidence, and calm during the birth.
