Astra Joynt reveres the woman as the expert on her own body and spirit and to quote the pregnancy care guidelines I believe in woman-centred care which "focuses on the woman’s unique needs, expectations and aspirations; recognises her right to self-determination in terms of choice, control and continuity of care; and addresses her social, emotional, physical, psychological, spiritual and cultural needs and expectations" (NHMRC, 2018).
