Families approach their pregnancies, birthing-times, and early months of parenting with such a wide range of beliefs, hopes, and personal history.

I'm interested in hearing what this pregnancy and baby are to you and your loved ones; and developing a deep understanding of how I can be of service to your growing family.

Families of all configurations, beliefs, and birth plans are welcome. I support births in home or hospital; natural, epidural, c-section, VBAC, birth after loss, birth for adoption, and multiples.

I've been honored to walk this path with women and families for over 23 years, attending 510+ births to date. While each birth is unique, there are also common themes in the passage. My role is to serve as an experienced companion and skilled guide, supporting your highest hopes and shining a light on your own wisdom, courage, and strength.
