Midwifery care should be available to everyone who desires this option. Midwifery is more than just a profession. It is a lifestyle.
Midwifery is a philosophy that encompasses patient autonomy, patient choice, education, advocacy, support, and a love of women and families.
I am passionate about all of those things. I know how it feels to have limited options. I know how it feels to be uninformed. I understand birth regrets.
I want everyone I interact with to know I will give them all the information I have in as unbiased a way as I can. I want everyone to know that I understand where they are coming from.
I see you. I hear you. I would love to be a witness to your story.
In June 2009, I attended my first birth that wasn't my own. I was hooked. I found a passion I didn't know I had and a calling that would eventually lead me here.
In August 2010, my world was rocked by my third baby and third NICU admission. I dove into studying research papers and medical journals. This led me to patient education, advocacy, and the complete shift of my preconceived notions and understandings of birth, breastfeeding, parenting, and healthy lifestyle choices.
In August 2016, I completed my training and certification requirements and became licensed by the State of Alaska. Over the years, I have supported and cared for hundreds of families through pregnancies, births, losses, childhood illnesses, and everyday life.
