Mother Care: Preparation for Conscious Birth

With doula Íris Garcia

To care for the Mother is to look after the possibility of a new life, not only of the child but of the woman whom is about to become a mother, the couple and the family.
To support the mother is to foster a culture of deeper respect, affection, contact, truth, sensitivity and care.
These sessions are meant to support the Mother as she journeys through becoming a mother and preparing for birth and life with a baby.
