I bring over 15 years of knowledge and understanding of labor and birth, with a strong but gentle touch to the families I serve. I offer knowledge and support for all types of families and situations. My passion is to help support families in their choices for their births, empower them to have voices in their care and nurture them in their birth journeys.
With over 300 births attended and my own experiences, I have gained a deep compassion through my own childbirth journeys about the strength of a laboring person and her support systems and their impact on the birth of a child. Being able to support families through their time of pregnancy, labor and birth and breastfeeding continually renews my belief in the natural circle of life. I am continually on a learning path to help enhance my ability to provide a wide array of support including; midwifery care, birth education, birth doula support and postpartum care services.
