I wish for every pregnant woman the feeling of confidence that she is just as she should be.  In this way, I wish that confidence is spread through our communities and becomes contagious so that each new mother and family would thereafter begin their journey in love and support.

There are so many things I love about being a midwife, but one of my favorite parts is getting to see the joy on new parents' faces when they meet their baby for the first time. It's such a beautiful, magical moment and I feel so honored to get to witness it.

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.
