"The process of childbirth is a normal physiological process perfectly designed to bring babies into the world. It is an instinctive, primal experience that has its own time table which should be respected and honored, and works best when interfered with as little as possible. Women should be encouraged to be active participants in decision-making and self-care. When informed, supported, and encouraged to follow their own instincts, women can be active givers of birth rather than passive receivers of birth technology. Childbirth, when experienced in this way, has the potential to be a transformative event; women who take responsibility for their births and give birth to their babies under their own power emerge from the experience empowered, with a new sense of their own capabilities. Choosing Mollie as your midwife you are assured to receive amazing and genuine care for mom, baby, and the whole family. She believes midwives are keepers of safe birth and by allowing the birth to unfold unhindered, without interventions you can achieve the birth of your dreams. Mollie offers home birth, birth center births, and water births. She is supportive of families planning VBACs."
