An undisturbed birth is a labor, birth and postpartum period in which there is no disruption to the birthing person's sacred flow of hormones. It preserves their autonomy as a wise individual able to govern their own care and their own decisions. The birthing person's dignity and wisdom are acknowledged and respected. The caregiver is seen as a partner in their journey, not as a leader in an authoritarian role.

Andrea Goldstein is a birth advocate, attendant, doula, educator, and placenta encapsulator. She created Birthing Asha - a project about birthing hope, birthing life. The word Asha is rooted in Sanskrit and its meaning is "the inherent nature of existence." Pregnancy, birth, and parenting are steeped with life, learning, and hope. Andrea believes women/families have the inherent right to choose how they meet birth. She hopes that we can co-create care and community around birth.
