As a birth professional, my role is to provide emotional, physical, and informational support throughout your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period.


I am also a resource to help you navigate medical terminology, protocols/procedures, all while empowering you to trust your ability to birth.

My path as a support provider began when I was pregnant with my first son.  I began to research pregnancy and birth and was amazed by the multitude of options available.  After the fantastic home birth of my first son I knew that birth work was my passion; helping women and families discover their options and supporting them in their journeys. 

When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth will change.
