I work closely with my fabulous, skilled team of midwives to provide family-centered care by helping to ensure optimal health for a mother and her child, encouraging a trust in the process of birth and helping to ease this joyful transition for families.

I believe that as women, as families, we have a right to the quantity and quality of information that enables sovereignty for each of us. In any setting, this is what we deserve. This is the standard of care we are committed to providing for each and every one of the families in our care. More than a medical event, we facilitate the opportunity to experience birth as what it is: a life-changing event worthy of whole presence and participation – body, mind, heart and soul.

Birth is a natural process of the mind, body, and spirit—a physical event our bodies are well designed for, but also an emotional, psychological, spiritual, cultural, even political event. Midwifery holds all of these aspects together, offering women information, support, and guidance while honoring that ultimately, the decisions rest in her hands. I view birth as a normal process that usually needs lots of support and very little intervention. Ideally, every family having a baby would have a network of support providing them access to appropriate options available to them.

Birth is always an adventure, each one is different, and I learn something new from each family and each experience... midwifery definitely never gets boring! Now that I have two children, both recently born at the birth center with midwives, I feel even more deeply the importance of what we offer families. In a word, time. This world moves so fast these days, I treasure the time, stillness and connection with people that my work as a midwife offers to me and to the families I serve.
