HOW I SUPPORT: I focus on honoring, witnessing, and providing full presence during a life-altering transformation for your family. I’m a firm believer that you have everything you need inside of you to have a gentle labor & birth experience. I use a trauma-informed, empathic approach to support you. I provide evidence-based information, practices, and techniques to help support your family’s decision-making from your prenatal to your postpartum journey. I even believe, with the right support and resources, labor & birth can be healing. I will encourage clients to have active & open communication with their provider to make informed decisions outside of my scope of practice.

WHO I SUPPORT: I support ALL types of desired birth experiences and outcomes. I believe in the birthing person’s body, and I also believe in modern medicine. I am proud to support all families with a variety of configurations, all cultural backgrounds, all religious preferences, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ community. As a white cisgender female, I am committed to learning more about policy change efforts in maternal healthcare. I will continue to explore ways in which racist and sexist policies and practices are deeply engrained in the healthcare system. I will be an advocate for social change which aims to dismantle the sexist and racist structures present within the current system. I will always be learning, and I am eager to continue to do this work.
