I believe that bringing a child onto this planet is the most awe-inspiring commitment that any one human can share with another. I also believe that providing a woman with knowledge and support can elevate her birthing experience to a level she may not have realized was possible. Birth is a most empowering and individual experience in a woman’s life. I strongly believe that what happens to us at the beginning of life and as birthing women, directly affects our emotional, physical, and spiritual well being, as well as our impact on society, throughout the rest of our lives.
My name is Jo Kilburn. I live in Encinitas, in southern California. I have 30 years of childbirth experience and have attended and assisted over 250 births in hospitals and at homes. These experiences have confirmed my belief in the importance of undisturbed birth and the need for full support by all involved. My certifications include DONA (Doulas of North America), HypnoBirthing CCE, Affiliated with the HypnoBirthing Institute, and a member of San Diego Birth Network, a group of professional and independent practitioners in San Diego who support the normalcy of birth.
