I began my midwifery journey 10 years ago while pregnant with my first baby. After exploring all options, I chose to place myself in the care of a group of Midwives and planned a birth center birth. On July 24, 2006 I experienced my first out-of-hospital birth at the Beverly Birth Center in Beverly, Massachusetts.
Shortly thereafter, our family relocated to South Florida and I quickly stepped into Birth and Postpartum Doula work. As I learned more about the midwifery model of care and experienced more hospital births, the distinction was all too clear. I began to seek out holistic birthing options for my clients and in turn discovered a community of birth workers, advocates and like-minded mothers.
In 2011, I enrolled in the midwifery training program at The Florida School of Traditional Midwifery. During this intensive three year academic program and apprenticeship I learned from and asssisted many midwives and families throughout South Florida. In August of 2012 I birthed my second baby at home with the loving support of my sister midwives.
As a midwife, I have witnessed over and over again how perfectly normal birth can be. I am blessed to have built connections and friendships with so many women and families within my community. A special thanks to these mothers for creating a space for me to serve you, and for trusting me as your guide and resource.
