About Intimate Journey

Beliefs & Values

From the creation of life to the moment of birth, it is an Intimate Journey full of emotions, deep profound connection, inner strength, self-empowerment, transformation and wonder. No other moment in the world can compare. I have experienced it several times myself, and now am very honored to be a part of that experience and journey with my future clients.

A woman’s freedom of choice is very important: I believe that clear communication and a thorough exchange of information will provide my clients with the best care and help us develop a relationship built on honesty, trust and respect. Natural birth is a normal physiological process that should be trusted, not feared. All women have everything they need inside to deliver their babies without excessive outside interference, and a good midwife can help steer you the right way along this inherent path.

I strongly believe in the power of faith, rather than giving into the doubt of the mind, which can lead us towards fear. When you have trust in your body and internal belief to guide you, there is nothing stronger.
