Midwifery care goes well beyond traditional obstetrics. Women who choose a midwife will have their own personal guide throughout their pregnancy, and during the labor and delivery. Midwifery care offers a personalized, relationship-based approach to welcoming a new child into the world. It also distinguishes itself in that a midwife emphasizes the importance of post-partum care, and looking after the mother’s emotional and spiritual well-being. It is my desire to equip you for the labor and birth of your baby, for you to feel powerful, knowledgeable, and capable to experience all that your birth with be!
A Midwife is a steadfast presence with you through the labor and birth, and helps to establish breastfeeding. Taking you through the education process of available testing, procedures, and newborn care. In depth visits where we talk about your previous history, experiences, traumas, fears, worries and concerns.
A Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) undergoes extensive academic and clinical training and testing before earning the CPM credential. As a CPM I provide a holistic approach to prenatal care addressing nutrition, exercise and psychological concerns ensuring you are prepared for the intense and empowering process of labor and birth. Learning is an on going process and I enjoy attending Continuing Education classes and fellowship with other Midwives, gaining from their wisdom.
