About me

It is my mission to support families in achieving a satisfying birth and postpartum experience. Every family is unique, as is each pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience. My services are tailored to meet the individual needs of each family I serve. Whether having a cesarean, vaginal, medicated or unmedicated birth, I will support you without judgment or bias. The birth of a child is a monumental and life-changing event. It would be my honor to support you during this experience.
