In today’s fast paced highly technical world, the journey of pregnancy has become a mixed bag of emotions for women. With all of the doctor appointments and “routine” tests, it leaves many women feeling overwhelmed and fearful for the journey ahead. These feelings were very apparent during a recent casual conversation with a friend whom I hadn't seen in a couple of years, and the conversation gradually shifted over to the fact that she was expecting her first baby in just under four months. I generally have these types of conversations quite often with women, because prenatal chiropractic has been my focus for nearly ten years. This conversation was no different from many of the others, but something she said really struck me: We were discussing who her birth provider was and where she was delivering, when she casually hinted that she wasn't really happy with her current doctor.

God blessed us with an innate drive to care for and nurture those that need help so we can practice our mothering skills as we grow up. Somewhere along the way movies with screaming women, tv shows with women shrieking in agony and implications surround our young girls that childbirth cannot be done without intervention, a massive team of doctors, and enough medication to knock us out because childbirth is only meant to survive. What if you were meant to dominate childbirth?
During a two day labor where our dear friend’s doula was out of town, I stepped in as a back up and I spent a lot of time in the labor and delivery waiting room. I saw many women arriving in wheel chairs and sobbing.
