What does a midwife do?

Prenatal Care

Midwifery care is centered around individualized care. The beauty of midwifery involves ever flowing change, growth, connection and transformation.

Home Birth

Midwives provide so much during labor & birth. We are the watchful guides, provide a calming & reassuring presence, and clinically keep mother and baby safe.

Postnatal Care

The postnatal period is the time for healing and bonding as a family with your new little one. I give support during this time because it’s usually a big adjustment.

Home Birth

Influence Your Birth Positively

There’s no place like home! You should choose the place you feel the safest for birth. For some women home is that place. We offer home birth packages.

Nurturing knowledge during and after pregnancy leads to empowered choices and a journey filled with confidence and understanding.

Licensed Midwife

Meet your Midwife!

Midwifery is not just my job, it is my calling. It is very fulfilling to be able to wake up each day and do something that I was born to do. I have been passionate and intrigued by midwifery, and all that it encompasses, since the day I was first introduced to it.

Thank you so much for taking care of my daughter, her husband, and their new baby girl. You are magnificent….REALLY! The atmosphere of her home birth changed immediately upon your arrival… your calming voice and demeanor are not something you can learn, it is God given.. thank you Erin for your tender loving care, your encouraging and kind words and your expertise. You’re amazing!

– Sincerely, Heather & Family
