Sheila has been married for 29 years and has 2 daughters and one son in law. (Hopefully there will be grand babies soon!) She has always been a birth junkie, enjoying all things related to birth. Her first encounter with supporting someone in labor came when she was blessed to be the doula for a friend that desired hospital birth but with no pain medication. From the moment of seeing that child born, she was fascinated and wanted to learn more. She began as a doula but quickly transitioned into student midwife training. She trained under 3 different Midwives and developed her own personal style of care. She cultivates a supportive community at the Birth Center, where families gather for pregnancy, birth, postpartum and beyond.
Sheila believes in informed consent for your care, and involves you in all of the decision making for your pregnancy and birth. She believes that care should include attention to mind, body, spirit and soul. Truly listening and being attentive to the needs of her clients is a hallmark of her care for each family she serves.
