I have been serving St. Louis area families with home birth services as a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) since 2010. I strive to provide my clients with holistic care tailored to the needs of each individual. I view pregnancy and birth as natural transition times in our lives and believe that homebirth allows for a smoother transition for the whole family. I see my role as someone to provide education, guidance, and encouragement while monitoring health and well being during pregnancy, labor, birth and the postpartum period. I attempt to provide and encourage clients to seek out evidence based information to use as a tool to make informed decisions that also take into consideration and/or reflects their own personal, religious, and cultural beliefs.
