My journey to midwifery began when I was only 12 years old. A friend invited me to her birth at the midwife's home. It was a beautiful, uncomplicated, (quick!) experience, and I was filled with awe at God's miraculous design for birth! More than a decade passed until I had the opportunity to apprentice at Family Birth Services in TX. I studied there for almost 20 months and also cross-trained with Molly Germash of Heart's Desire Midwifery Care for 3 months. Concurrently I was completing the academic work of the Association of Texas Midwives Midwifery Training Program. After graduating last fall, I sat for the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) exam in February 2009. I am now a Certified Professional Midwife, and I'm licensed in TX and VA.
I look forward to meeting you to discover how I can best serve you during this amazing time in your life!
