Peace on Earth Begins with Birth

I am a mother of two nature-loving, wild boys; partner to a wonderful man (and chef!);  and lover of the earth and sea.  I was a yoga teacher for 12 years before becoming a midwife and my family and I still love to incorporate that deep peace of movement and meditation in our daily lives. I love to sing, dance, garden, hike, snorkel, read and enjoy life and nature! But I’m most passionate about being a guardian of the sacred gate that we call birth; bearing witness to the awakening of a woman’s power; helping inform, heal and protect The Four Baskets- the time frame from conception to six hours after birth.

Although I am a certified midwife (since September 2016), I have also been trained in the ancient art of traditional midwifery and consider myself a new earth community midwife. My skills include use of herbs, massage, song and yoga. I provide a full service of prenatal visits, intrapartum and postpartum care in the home to healthy, low risk pregnant women and their babies regardless of religion, race, alternative lifestyles, or ethnic origin.

I would love to talk to you and see if we are a good match for each other. Please feel free to contact me and leave your email or phone number and I will respond as soon as possible.
