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.

Question 2) Why did you become a midwife?

Hint: A big part of the answer is in this picture.

"After thoroughly researching, I found it answered much more than my original question of how to have a better birth experience; I also discovered this was the calling and relationship that I had wanted all along!"

"The most important thing is to address fears, women can do it. We need to give them confidence in their bodies and their abilities."
Ruth Malik, Birth India

Battling a c-section rate of at least 30% in Indian hospitals (some estimates put it closer to 70%), natural child birth is on the rise thanks to education and women challenging the status quo.
