Small Wonders believes:

Every pregnant woman and her supportive companions are unique and special.
  • Getting to know you and your individual needs is our goal as childbirth educators and doulas. Then we can provide a flexible and client directed experience.
Pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding are amazing, life transforming experiences that are normal, natural events in our collective human experience.
  • We have great respect for the female body and its ability to grow, give birth to and feed a baby. Equally important is the emotional work mothers and fathers do as they transition into parenthood.
Medical care is an important component of a healthy pregnancy.
  • Our clients use midwives, family practitioners, and/or obstetricians as their primary caregivers.
As educators, we know learning styles vary and adults learn best in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
  • We act as facilitators, moving participants through a wide variety of learning activities towards mutually agreed upon goals.
Childbirth educators and doulas are responsible to the parents.
  • We work for you, providing up-to-date, evidence-based education and support.

Childbirth is a time when a woman’s power and strength emerge full force, but it is also a vulnerable time, and a time of many changes presenting opportunities for personal growth. — Anne Van Oploo , J. Schwegel’s Adventures in Natural Childbirth
