My Philosophy of Care:

Certified nurse midwives view pregnancy and birth as normal processes with a focus on patient centered care by encouraging women to participate in the decision-making process. I believe the midwife and woman are partners in care and form a relationship based on a shared decision-making model. The use of technology and intervention is used as minimally as possible and is reserved for when circumstances fall out of the realm of normal. I believe it is the duty of the midwife to ensure that women have access to most reliable and accurate information based on the best evidence so that she receives a high quality of care and and is able make informed decisions with appropriate guidance. In addition to providing care during pregnancy, labor and birth, and postpartum, I provide low risk women's health care including annual exams, preconception counseling, birth control consultations, menopause management, and addressing minor gynecological concerns to women across the lifespan.

As a mother of three children, I recognize that the birth of a child is one of the most important and memorable times in a woman's life. Whether she desires a natural birth, pain medication, or an epidural during labor, I am there to provide her with support regardless of her decision. I strive to help facilitate the most positive birth experience as possible. As a midwife, it is an honor for a woman to allow me to be a part of her birth.
