I come to your home for every prenatal visit and spend at least an hour with you. In addition to all of the clinical checks you would normally receive with any maternity care provider, there is a strong emphasis on building an honest relationship. I believe that birth works best when a woman has trust in her care providers and this is foundational to the Midwife's Model of Care.
My team and I will monitor the well-being of mother and baby during the labor and birth and intervene only when necessary and only with your consent. We stay for several hours afterwards to perform the newborn exam, facilitate breastfeeding, clean-up, etc.. We will not leave until mom and baby are stable.
I return to your home several times over the course of the 6 weeks after birth. Every time I come over, I will be checking on baby as well as mom. Resources and support are tailored to your individual needs.
Midwifery was a late bloom in my life. I was called to begin my training as the season of raising my own children was coming to a close. I thoroughly enjoyed my mothering years and the transition into helping mothers to mother came about organically and logically. I graduated from the National College of Midwifery in 2010 and received my California License (LM) from the Medical Board of California that same year. Intimate, family-centered birth is the safest, most satisfying option for the majority of birthing mothers. I am pleased to offer you quality, personal, home-based, whole-woman care.
Please feel free to call me if you would like more information about the services I provide. I am happy to chat with you and address any questions or concerns you may have. If you reach my voicemailbox, please leave me your number and the better times to reach you.
I have served Southern California families from Ft. Irwin to Long Beach and from Palmdale to Palm Springs
