HomeBirth Midwife

When attending your birth at home, I bring the ancient wisdoms of traditional midwifery and combine them with the evidence-based care of modern midwifery. I practice holistic care, looking at the whole picture, taking into account all aspects of the situation. I understand that no two births are the same and each woman is an individual, with her own preferences and needs. I provide individualized, constant, and compassionate care through out your pregnancy,  labor, delivery and postpartum period.

As a home birth midwife I provide:
  • Free, no obligation interview
