Pam was my Mom’s midwife for the last two of my siblings, so I had the privilege of knowing her before I had my own children. She was a big aspect as to why I chose a home birth. I have been around it my entire life and have a Mom who is very passionate about home birth. I on the other hand was open to either a home birth or a hospital. So I decided to try a home birth with my first. I could not have done it without her! Pam says that I could have but I know that her calm presence, knowledge and experience, and her amazing coaching is what made my birthing experience so empowering. She has the knowledge and experience, very important for the health of Mom and baby. But she also has an amazing gift, she has a gift of teaching woman how to become empowered through the birthing experience, to truly experience the moment and the power it holds. I have thankfully had the honor of having Pam at all three of my births of my children; Dru, Tasi and Te’o.
