"We have a secret in our culture, and it's not that birth is painful.
It's that women are strong." -Laura Stavoe Harm

My goal is to help women birth in whatever way they wish, with the least amount of intervention possible. I believe women should birth surrounded by people who love them and in an environment and atmosphere that the woman chooses. This allows the woman to fully relax and let the birth unfold as it needs to.
The services that I provide are:
I am a state licensed midwife who has been practicing since 2002. Before starting as a midwife, I worked both as a doula (www.dona.org) and as a Bradley Natural Childbirth Educator (www.bradleybirth.com). I have also been trained as an Aquanatal and Happiest Baby instructor. I adore working with women and seeing the amazing things that they can do with adequate support and resources. The optimal birth experience is possible when you have a team that knows you and trusts the process.
