I am a traditionally trained midwife and a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator. I started training with Margarett Scott, CPM of Heaven Sent Births in 1997 after the successful VBAC of my second baby. I have attended hundreds of families as they birth, both at home and in the hospital. As a childbirth educator, I enjoy teaching both to homebirth clients and to families planning hospital births. I also serve as doula/monitrice for families birthing in a hospital. I am currently working toward taking the NARM midwifery exam to obtain my CPM certification. I have attended many conferences and workshops to augment the midwifery training and practice. I have experience in birth photography and belly casting and placental encapsulation. I provide all in-home care for prenatal, labor and delivery and postpartum visits.
As the mother of six children, I personally have a varied personal birthing background, including a c-section and 5 successful VBAC’s both at home and in the hospital. I am is a member of MANA, The Association of Texas Midwives, ICEA, and Lamaze International and am one of the founding members of Heartland
