My journey with midwifery began with the birth of my own three children. I searched for a philosophy of birth that made sense and found midwifery care. After birthing all of my children with midwives, I heard the calling to become a midwife myself. My passion is to help empower and educate women and their families and provide them with the best care throughout the childbearing season.
