My mission is to facilitate the most positive birth experience possible, doing everything I can to keep my client at the center of their own birth story.


My role

Birth is an intimate experience. A sacred moment. What if you went into labor feeling confident and informed--trusting your body and the process? Knowing that your birth partner will feel connected and involved during this incredible journey? My role is to build a safe and trusting relationship with the birthing mother and partner. To have a deep understanding of their thoughts, feelings and desires about birth. To clarify the intent of the birth plan, provide comfort measures, physical and emotional support, as well as timely information and resources.
