I am a certified, professional midwife working in Colorado Springs. I have a degree in counseling and have a heart to know and understand people. I also love to ballroom dance, cook amazing food, and read with my kiddos.
I pursued midwifery through a traditional apprenticeship, learning from an experienced midwife for many years. Some wisdom can only be gained with time. My passion is helping women with care and understanding through this transformative time in life. Pregnancy, childbirth and parenting are normal stages of life meant to be nurtured. I want to empower my clients to make the decisions about their birth and baby. I want them to be surrounded by those that make them feel safe and supported. 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.
“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.”
