Throughout our website, marketing materials, and social media profiles, you’ll find the word “unbiased” everywhere you look.
But what does that mean? What does “unbiased” look like as we support you during your pregnancy, your birth, and your transition into parenthood?
Unbiased means we support you, regardless of your age, your race, your gender, your sexuality, your religion, or your ability. It means we support your family, whatever that looks like to you. Whether you have a partner by your side, a family member, a best friend, or no one but your strong self, we’ve got your back without judgment.
Unbiased means we don’t promote one way of giving birth over another. We don’t push for unmedicated, natural births or encourage you to just get the epidural. We don’t throw around phrases like “giving birth the way God intended” or “the way we were designed to give birth.” We leave our opinions at the door to meet you where you are and give you the individualized support you need. We don’t pretend to think we know what’s best for you and your unique situation.
Unbiased means we don’t make judgments about your choices. We don’t squirm when you tell us what you’re choosing to do with your son’s foreskin. We don’t run and hide when you share your opinions on vaccinating. We don’t give you the side-eye when you tell us whether your baby is breastfeeding or bottle-feeding, sleeping in bed with you or on a strict schedule in their own room. We trust you to make these choices. We’re here with an open heart and an open mind if you have questions or concerns or need more information to make the right choice for your family.
