About me

Do you know how amazing you are? I want you to know you're amazing. You can totally handle birth. I'm happy to support you with shame-free personalized nutrition counseling, prenatal care that is actually helpful, birth support based on YOUR preferences, and postpartum care that doesn't leave you feeling abandoned. I'm a music teacher turned midwife after firing my doctors when they failed to meet my needs, again. After 2 c-sections for being "too small", I had 5 amazing home births. I'm here so other women with prior c-sections have access to a safe and knowledgeable VBAC provider, and so all women can birth in their power.

Monatrice
Want the benefits of midwifery care but can't/don't want a home birth? I can't catch your baby in the hospital, but as a monatrice I can provide all the same prenatal and postpartum care, just as you would receive if I were your midwife. During early labor I can monitor you and your baby at home until it's time for you to go to your chosen birth place. Once we arrive in the hospital in labor, I function as a birth doula and will no longer offer any clinical support. Then once you get home, we resume normal midwifery-style care. This package requires concurrent care with a doctor. If I end up catching your baby under this package, I will insist your baby be checked out at the hospital immediately and will ask for my full midwife fee.
