Birth is my passion. Walking with women and their families through all that is pregnancy, birth and the "4th trimester" brings me the greatest joy. There is no better "job," and I'm thankful every day to be in the service of my clients.
More than 20 years ago I helped my first client and friend give birth. The path was set. More than 500 births later, this is still the work that feeds my heart in the way that nothing else can.
When I was new to birth, my "tool kit" that I brought with me included lots of physical items - tennis balls, a birth ball and it's pump, heat packs... the list goes on. Since then, my tools became much more integrated into who I am as a person.
I became a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM), and was blessed to work at an amazing birth center in Portland, Oregon. If you have 8 minutes, feel free to watch this lovely Andaluz Waterbirth Center Video. I caught a few of those babies, though please note that my hair was very short!
Now that I'm here in Chicago, I'm able to provide labor support services, placenta encapsulation, and birth tub and breast pump rentals. I'm now also providing Hypnobabies® Childbirth Classes!
