God has led me on a path and planted the seedling of midwifery in my heart from my first pregnancy. Researching my options in care, my eyes began to open to the disparity between natural, unhindered birth and the average American birth. I chose a midwife to counsel me and support me through my pregnancy. As I matured and I went on to have two more children, my passion for birth work rooted. Marina Alzugaray said, “It was as if midwifery was leading me on from the start, except that I was not aware of it.”
My passion is women helping women with care and understanding through this transformative time in life. Pregnancy, childbirth and parenting are normal stages of life and are meant to be nurtured. I want every woman to decide freely where and with whom she will birth. I want her to be surrounded by those that make her feel safe, her husband, children, and support team. Pregnancy and birth are powerful, beautiful events. They can be a time of great intimacy between the mom and her partner, self-exploration for the mom, and abundant growth for the family. It would be my honor to support you through this transition.
“Just as a woman’s heart knows how and when to pump, her lungs to inhale and her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows when and how to give birth.”
