  • We believe trauma is unique to the individual, and we know that triggers differ from person to person and can occur without warning.
  • We strive to practice in a way that does not re-traumatize clients.
  • We recognize all pregnant individuals are capable, powerful, and deserving of the utmost respectful clinical support.
  • We encourage clients to express their needs and ask questions often.
