I will provide you with current, relevant, evidence based information to support and guide you through your journey

All too often people leave the hospital or the doctor’s office feeling like they need more information and not knowing where to go to find that information, a search on the internet turns into trying to sort through relevant vs. irrelevant, accurate vs. inaccurate, current vs. outdated information. I give you the answers to the questions that are most important to you. I help you to make the decision that is best for your family and situation.

Find out how it all works, here.

I discuss your birth options openly with you and respect the choices you make, in the delivery room I act as an advocate and guide to get past all the medical jargon so you understand your options clearly, this helps you make the best decision for you and for your baby. The same approach is used after pregnancy – I offer you the most current research and information so that you can make the most informed choice that suits you and your family.

I look forward to meeting with you, your partner and family to discuss your prenatal, delivery and postpartum needs. Please read the FAQs section or e-mail me!
