What People Say About Empowering Moms
“Being informed made all the difference”
On June 1, 2019 I delivered my 8 lb 1 oz baby girl at 41 + 2 and it was a very successful VBA2C! Without the information I got I would not have had the confidence to advocate for myself the way I did. I had such a supportive husband and medical team on my side and everyone cheering me on right until the end which made it even more special. Being informed made all the difference. Thank you again.
“Full of valuable information and knowledge. “
My hope is that people find your services before they give birth and learn well in advance about the pitfalls of the hospital birthing system, informed consent and unnecessary interventions. Thank you Carly for your ongoing efforts to educate families and advocate for women and babies. Your insightful work makes a difference in decision making and ultimately saves lives!
