All of my wonderful, God given kids.
My journey in midwifery began 22 years ago with the birth of my daughter. She was born by c-section after a long and difficult labor. In hindsight, I believe, if I had the support of a patient and knowledgeable caregiver (midwife), things would have been different.
My next 10 children were VBAC’s with the last 3 being out of hospital with a wonderful midwife and each of those births were beautiful and healing. With that experience, I wanted to offer that special gift to others. My personal midwife and husband encouraged me to start my formal training and I am so thankful they did.
I saw a need for women to have a greater choice when it comes to childbirth and to have the encouragement and support they need during pregnancy and birth. My passion is to provide the highest level of service, to understand my clients’ needs and provide a safe environment so women can give with dignity.
Our desire goes beyond your appointments, we genuinely desire the opportunity to be part of your journey during this wonderful time, and it is a privilege.
