Meet My Midwife

My Purpose

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. All of my own children were born at home, and the beauty and unmistakable need for safe, affordable, and experienced midwifery care is something I have always wanted to provide for expecting mothers everywhere. I believe natural birth is an Intimate Journey, a sacred interaction between baby, mother, partner, and midwife. My job is to help give you a safe and memorable birth which you will treasure for the rest of your life.

My Training

I am fully trained and licensed by The Medical Board of California and hold a national certification with The North American Registry of Midwives, and graduated from Nizhoni Institute for Midwifery in San Diego. My approach to midwifery is to blend old and new, utilizing clinical and modern techniques, but at the same time to honor and practice time-honored philosophies to give you a safe and special natural birth in the comfortable setting of your home or at my birth center.

My Skillset

Assisting mothers during one of the most important phases of their lives is something I excel at; I bring my heart, soul & powerful intuition to the birthing room. Some of the greatest tools that I will provide to you, besides the midwifery skills I have learned thus far, are my ability to listen & respect what the mother says and desires for her own care, my uncanny instincts in recognizing what the mother or baby needs in any given moment, the gift of my hands to help the mother & baby with comfort, and finally, my faith in a universe bigger than us, believing and trusting in a higher power above to send additional guidance, reassurance, strength, light & love.
