Perform any clinical tasks
I am not a medical professional and do not perform clinical tasks such as vaginal exams or fetal heart monitoring. I do not give medical advice or diagnose conditions.
Make decisions for you
It's important for me to empower you to make your own decisions about your birthing experience. I do not make decisions for you or judge you for decisions that you make.
Speak to the staff on your behalf
I will discuss your concerns with you and suggest options, but you or your partner will speak on your behalf to the clinical staff.
Project any of my own beliefs onto your experience
I do not let my personal values or biases get in the way of caring for you (for example, pressure you into making any decisions just because that’s what I prefer).
