I am passionate about making every birth the best it can be for every woman and her baby, whether that be hospital, birth center, or home.
I believe the first step to better birth is women who are better educated... about their bodies, their incredible abilities, their choices, and the joy of motherhood.
I have been a birth activist and hospital doula for years, and now proudly claim the title of Certified Professional Midwife as well, serving women who choose homebirth.
