Sonoma County's Birth Center
My path to Midwifery started in Taos, at the Northern New Mexico Women’s Birth center. I attended my first birth in 1998. My eyes were opened to the amazing power the birthing mother has and the incredible amount of strength and trust that it takes to have a baby. From that birth on I dedicated my self to becoming a midwife, doula, educator and all around supporter of women.
For over 20 years now I have been offering Wise Woman care to Wise Women and families through conception, pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum. My goal is supporting and educating our clients so they can enter their births with strength and confidence, leaving fear far behind.
I have delivered hundreds of babies and have supported countless families though this transition into parenthood. I understand the nature of pregnancy and birth. I promise you that with my care you will move through this transition with guidance and support that you won’t fine with most main stream health care providers.
Being a Midwife has taught me many lessons. It has taught me how incredibly strong women are and how truly amazing our bodies have to be. It has taught me patience beyond words. Midwifery has also strengthened my two daughters and has shown them that they can trust in their bodies. That birth does work, and that they are strong enough to do it. I recently had the incredible honor of helping to deliver my first granddaughter… at home, surrounded with love and respect!
I have been very fortunate in my career as a Midwife. Midwifery has given me the medical skills, training and education that I have been able to take with me to countries like Mexico, Vanuatu, Indonesia, Guatemala and Uganda to provide midwifery aid to women and babies deserving good quality care.
Sharing & receiving knowledge and wisdom with traditional birth attendants has expanded my experience in the birth world far beyond what any class room or book could have taught me. I trust in our bodies ability to birth our babies safely. I believe in choice, and that we as women should be given the right to choose where and with whom we will give birth. I always feel blessed and honored to be able to witness a new life emerge into this world, and support a new family through this sacred transition.
