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.

During my third pregnancy, I was working a corporate job and couldn’t wait for the day after my due date to arrive so that when I was asked again “When are you due?” I could smile and respond “Yesterday,” just to see the looks on people’s faces.

What's your favorite due date story?

You guys, I won an “art” contest! The object was to create something midwifery related. I did a mom and baby in the bathtub. ❤️

What’s funny is that I was just thinking to myself today while creating a postpartum baby gift for a client that I’m not very creative or artistic. How’s that for some negative thinking!

I was clearly supposed to receive a more positive message today. 🤩

Had a great time gathering with a variety of Midwives from around the Houston area tonight.

Any guesses on how long the first-time mom goes past her estimated due date (EDD)? What's your experience with due dates?
