Everyone's pregnancy, birth and mother hood journey is different.  From my own experience of 9 pregnancies and births, I've learned just how unique and important each little thing can be to a mother.  I started my own journey with a hospital birth and ended it with many home births.  That all helped to shape my birth philosophy and it fed my love of educating and guiding women along their own journey.  Everyone deserves a trauma free pregnancy and birth where they feel heard, in charge, and honored as the mother to their child. 

Besides from birth work and together with my husband, we homeschool our children, grow a fierce veggie garden year round, and tend to a variety of chickens. I enjoy sewing, baking, and cleaning like a maniac!

Educational and Professional History

Childbirth Education and
Doula Work 

2006- present

Certified 2022

In 2006 I witnessed birth for the first time and I was sparked with a desire and passion to study birth fetal development and basic hospital birth practices. Through time and experience my studies became homebirth midwifery! With my love for women, babies, and birth, I attended births as an unofficial Doula for over a decade and certified in 2020 to be able to attend hospital births during covid.

I apprenticed with Certified Professional Midwives and Direct Entry Midwives as a birth assistant learning the skills of the trade, completing online and in-person midwifery training with The Virtual Preceptor; featuring IVs, blood draws, well woman care, suturing, hemorrhage control and other birth emergencies.

Helping Babies Breathe,
CPR, NRP

2020-present

Helping babies breathe is a full course by the American Academy of Pediatrics. HBB teaches essential neonatal resuscitation and newborn care skills to support babies that do not breathe on their own after birth. HBB neonatal resuscitation techniques have been shown to reduce early neonatal mortality by up to 47% and stillbirths by up to 24%.

Neonatal resuscitation and CPR are requirements for all Midwives and most birth workers. Recertification takes place as per guidelines, for instance NPR must be renewed every 2 years.
