Paraphrasing Penny Simkin, Co-founder of DONA, International

Penny Simkin, co-founder of DONA, International, once said “We can’t control how the labor is going to go. We can control how we care for women.”

I would like to add my own twist to that: Childbirth is unpredictable, but care for the birthing mom should not be.   A birthing woman discovers her strength through our loving support and her participation in the process.
