I reside in beautiful Bucks County. I am a mom to two amazing children, a wife to my greatest supporter, and, best, part of a family of great love. They are the backbone of my birth work, helping me protect and support this transformative time for a woman and her expanding role and family.
I came to birth work in my journey to parenthood, approaching pregnancy and birth with desires that didn’t fit into the standard medical model of birth. It continued into parenting as I found the standard way so far from what I wished for my family. I have learned how to lean into my values to help guide important choices in my pregnancies and parenting and find it extremely helpful in how I have come into birth work to support each person individually.
As a family, we live for the outdoors and enjoy snowboarding, camping, kayaking, hiking, traveling, and spending time with our family and friends. We are a Waldorf-inspired family and embrace many of the principles in our family and, in turn, my work.
I am an open book, as transparent as they come, and happy to help you discover if we are a good fit. I am always excited to learn about your unique journey to pregnancy and parenthood. This transition is monumental and worthy of nothing but kindness, respectful care, and loving support, which I am honored to provide.
My role in birth work has evolved, starting as a busy birth and postpartum doula, childbirth educator, birth assistant and now a midwife, providing prenatal care for women who are low-risk, healthy, and opting for an out-of-hospital experience to meet their baby.
Planning on home birth and want me to be a part of your prenatal care team and birth team, let’s chat!
I have been supporting births since 2016, supporting physiological births in all settings. I have enjoyed guiding expecting women on ways to remain in control of their body, their baby and their birth in a system that likes to take that power away.
My role expanded as I developed relationships with the midwives I would work with, who took me under their wing and helped me see I had the ability to do more. I started picking up new skills and started supporting home birth midwives as an assistant in 2019. It brought a new awareness to my abilities and interests, and I started pursuing my education in midwifery.
I joined the National College for Midwifery in early 2022 for didactic support and currently working through the NARM/MEAC clinical requirements with local and experienced CPMs and CNMs for potential future certification as a CPM.
My experience changes weekly with each birth. I learn something new at every birth and approach each birth as a unique experience since each pregnancy, each woman’s body and each baby is unique.
