I am a Licensed Midwife, Natural Childbirth Educator, Birth Monitrice, and Placenta Encapsulator. I am passionate about educating families about their choices. I believe that no matter where a woman chooses to birth, it is her right to choose what is appropriate for her body and her baby. I bring a balance of compassion and trust in the birthing process, paired with a respect for the current medical research and medical standards. I practice evidence-based midwifery, but believe that is through connection and individualized care, that a woman and her partner can truly be served. I am ecstatic to be serving the women and families of the North Bay, and do so with joy, gratitude, and humility.
