About Me

I am a Midwife.
Simple and sweet, a midwife. If you want to get technical, I happen to be a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM). I have been on this path for quite some time, since 1999 to be exact. It was a long, round about trip but I wouldn't trade it for anything. I started out as a Mother, then a Nurse and now a Midwife. (In reality I am always all three.) As a nurse, I worked in a busy urban teaching hospital. I staffed the Postpartum floor, the Well Baby Nursery, the High Risk Antepartum floor, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit or NICU and the Labor & Delivery Unit. Also, during this time, I worked as a nurse in a free standing birth center. Eventually, I earned my midwifery degree and was blessed to be hired as a midwife at the same birth center, where I have been ever since.
I believe in physiologic birth and that birth must be respected. I believe that a healthy woman, when supported and nurtured, will likely remain healthy throughout her pregnancy, labor and birth. And that she will grow a healthy baby that is designed to navigate the birth process.  For these women and babies, health is my assumption. I will closely watch and monitor their progress and intervene when necessary. I am a partner with my Mama's, on equal footing, but I also have years of training and knowledge that I can and will utilize to help educate and guide them.
I believe that Peace on Earth Truly Does Begin With Birth.

  2. I love your blog. I am a mid-thirties nurse that feels a calling to do midwifery and women's health....a specialty I know very little about and haven't really worked in. It's overwhelming to think of a career change now, yet when I walk away I always get alled back. Any words of advice for an aspiring midwife?

  3. Jennifer, Thanks! Have you thought about looking into Doula training? Working as a Doula can be a way to see how you handle the lifestyle of being on call, is also way to learn valuable birth support skills that you may not learn in nursing and does not require as big of a time/money commitment that midwifery training does. Good Luck to you on your journey.
