It is true that I am your advocate. However, I will not speak for you to your care provider or nurses. I will encourage communication between you and all of your birth team.

I will encourage your birth partner to speak for you if you wish. I will provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions. I will then allow you and your birth partner to make a decision. Whatever decision you make, I will support it and continue to give you emotional and physical support. It is your birth and your birth story.
