My journey.

I have had the privilege of working with birthing families for close to 25 years in a variety of settings and circumstances. From my early years raising my own family, to being a doula, to my midwifery practice now, my love and passion for this art only increases over time.

Let's meet and share stories: I'd love to share why the midwifery model of care matters so much to me and you can share what you need from a midwife. My care is personal and individualized so that each mother feels safe and heard.

I have a passion for women that have known emotional, physical, or sexual abuse and I believe birth can help integrate and heal their experience. 

I am known for talking to babies, believing in what we can't see and trusting the process. I have come to learn that each woman is changed through each birthing she experiences, as is her partner. It has been an evolution of learning and stretching that has allowed me to empower women and men to embrace their experience and catch their own babies. Oftentimes the prenatal time is a time of exploring, stripping, and untangling old wounds so that the way of the heart is made clear. I believe pregnancy is The Great Revealer, causing us to see things more clearly than before, including our current relationships. This clarity is oftentimes referred to as "hormonal" or that she is "sensitive." We have a great opportunity to grow deeply during this time! This is my passion! I spend as much time counseling and encouraging as I do sitting at labors. Having the unique privilege of working with my husband provides even more wisdom and care into all that I do. 

If anything resonates with you and you sense we are a good match, let us meet and connect!
