Since 2004, Cindy Sarlo has assisted mothers through the tender transitions of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum as an Educator, Birth Doula, & Birth Photographer. Believing that thoughtful preparation and experienced support are key factors in birth outcomes, she is eager to share how you can experience the best birth possible!
Remember this, for it is as true as true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine. The Creator is not a careless mechanic. Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceri, elephants, moose, and water buffalo. Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body.
