Planning for a baby? Congratulations, and welcome!
I am married to my husband Buddy and we have two children, Annabelle and AJ, and one cat, Linus. I have delivered 3 full-term babies of my own, two in a hospital setting, one at home. My firstborn daughter, Ella, suffered from a catastrophic heart defect which took her life two days after birth. This experience along with my other subsequent births has given me a unique perspective on women’s physical and emotional needs during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I am also working toward qualifying as a CPM (Certified Professional Midwife, or “homebirth midwife.”) As part of my training I have attended dozens of homebirths as an assistant and have gained valuable experience that I am now taking with me into the next phase of my training, in the role of Primary Midwife Under Supervision (PMUS)
I am constantly expanding my knowledge of labor and birth through workshops, seminars, and hands-on training. I am happy to bring what I've learned from my own experiences, my continuing education in birth work and the many families I've attended to each new client as I help you navigate the journey into parenthood, whether it's for the first or the eighth time.
Whether you’re considering homebirth midwifery care or planning a hospital birth with a doula, I would love to talk about how I can be a support to you and your family.
