I have given birth three times and though each birth experience was vastly different, they have something in common – I will never forget them. I would love for every woman to have a special and meaningful childbirth experience. My experiences many years ago first led me to lactation peer counseling and postpartum support. My passion to serve and empower women led to becoming a birth doula, and eventually a midwife. I am certified through the North American Registry of Midwives as a Certified Professional Midwife and hold a Midwifery Bridge Certificate. I am also licensed as a midwife in the state of South Carolina. I believe birth is a natural, hormonally driven process from the onset of labor through birth of the baby and placenta, as well as the establishment of breastfeeding and the development of mother-baby attachment. To support the natural birth process, women need informational, emotional, and physical support, as well as minimal external interference.
