My Radiant Beginnings – Educating and Empowering Women to Make Confident Birthing Choices

My Birthing Philosophy

I believe birth is a beautiful, natural process and that women have freedom and choices! I see my role as healthcare provider to educate and encourage women along their journey towards a radiant beginning. From the actual physical miracle of new life developing within to the more subtle but equally as miraculous birth of a new mother (whether this is her first child or her fifth!), my goal is to equip you for the upcoming adventure.

I hope to encourage and educate in order to empower not only the couple but also the entire family. As the parents of the unborn child I believe your healthcare is your ultimate responsibility. I hope to partner together with you and look forward to your experiences. I believe prevention can go a long way toward avoiding certain outcomes or complications. I want you to be active in your care and communication about your desires. I will do my best in all circumstances, except where there is concern for the safety of mom/baby, to honor those requests.

While I cannot guarantee each couple who chooses to book with me will have an out-of-hospital birth, I believe everyone has a role to play, to the best of their abilities, to lend towards optimal outcomes. As a licensed midwife, I must follow state regulations that work as a frame to guide and protect. If your pregnancy should fall outside my realm of practice at any point, I will do my best to help you make alternative plans for the remainder of your pregnancy and birth. I will work to assist low risk clients in their journey throughout pregnancy, labor, delivery and the postpartum phase.

Please share. Anyone who knows me knows I speak truth. (And sometimes Iโ€™m avoided for that reason) ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ I will listen, I will share and I will help where I can. This is real. It may be for a season but we need to find how to get through this season. ๐Ÿ’• I see you and I know you are not alone.

We can do better for our new mothers.
