Innatus Birth is co-founded by two Latina women who whole-heartedly believe in the innate qualities of the pregnant body. Our mission is to support families make well informed, honored, and feel-good decisions that support their birth preferences. Our goal is to provide families with the evidence-base information they need to walk into birth without fear and feeling empowered! Birth is beautiful, powerful and innate! By providing families with intellectual, physical and emotional support, we hope to remove the fear aspect that is so often associated with giving birth and becoming parents. Empowered parents, make empowered children! Let’s start the cycle of empowerment now. Trust yourself, trust your body! You can do this! Innatus Birth believes in you!
