“As a midwife I help women explore their choices in birth and discover their own ability to give birth in a safe and sensitive environment. I feel comfortable with the birthing process and embrace each new birth experience as an opportunity to serve women and to understand more about the interplay of art and science in midwifery care. The women in my practice have been my greatest teachers and I am honored to share this special life event with them.”
