Make Room at the Table-

Oh, how I wish the Spokane and Coeur d'Alene community of birth professionals was healthy and happy. But, sadly I see isolation, territorial attitudes and fierce competition. The main problem is a lack of mutual respect for other kinds of midwives, doulas and educators. That's right ladies- simple R-E-S-P-E-C-T goes a long ways. We all want to promote natural childbirth, the midwifery model of care, and out-of-hospital options for birthing families. Why can't we work together and promote one another for the sake of serving our community? This is my prayer for North Idaho and Spokane.
