She will make sure that you and your partner are cared for and loved on your big day, remind you of your preferences, meet your needs, and squeeze your hips. When your baby is born, she will make sure to snap a few pictures to capture that incredible moment, and then help you feed your baby for the first time - however you choose.

I never felt like I was judged nor did I feel pressure to take any particular route. Preparing for birth can be stressful and scary and it was wonderful to have Paige's calm and reassuring demeanor and knowledge to help my husband and I work through our birthing process."
