I believe that childbirth can be a beautiful and powerfully positive experience for a woman. I recognize the strong dynamics of birth by providing balanced information and caring support in a safe environment. I honor that just as every woman is different, so is every birth. It is my privilege to accompany and assist each of my clients and their families on their special journey.  I offer home birth midwifery services, in-hospital doula care, traveling lactation support, and in-home wise woman wellness.
