I am a Certified Professional Midwife who has been attending births in Central Pa since 2007. After completing a MEAC accredited program at Birthwise Midwifery School in Bridgton, Maine, I began in a preceptorship, then continued as an assistant before starting my own practice. I provide homebirth services, with the intention of helping families to have a birth experience that is safe, peaceful, respectful and as personal as possible. I approach my work with trust in the natural physiologic birth process. I like to spend time getting to know my clients personally and also to provide plenty of information about pregnancy, labor and newborns so that every woman and family feels empowered to make informed choices. I am happy to help with water births and to discussing the possibility of a VBAC. I generally travel in a 50-60 mile radius of my home in Millheim (just outside of State College). Feel free to contact me by phone or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org
) for more information.
