I am a homebirth midwife in the Denver area since 1987. I offer complete prenatal care, attendance at your birth and postpartum followup. Waterbirths are also a choice with three portable birth tubs available for my clients. I offer counseling in nutrition, breastfeeding and herbs in the childbearing year as well as homebirth preparation classes. Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) - also called Home Birth After Cesarean (HBAC) is a choice for healthy well-nourished women seeking positive support.
I now include 3-month, 6-month and one year followup postpartum visits as part of my practice to promote breastfeeding, maintain client contact, and build community. By popular demand we hold a Mother's Circle once each month to create a space for midwifery clients to meet, share and support.
I am a classically-trained homeopath and use craniosacral therapy as an adjunct to my practice. The current focus of my extended learning is Non-Violent Communication techniques offered by Marshall Rosenberg.
Education and empowerment, coupled with informed consent are the foundations of my practice. I strive to provide a safe space for every woman to find the body knowledge within herself to birth her baby. I do this to change world - one woman, one baby, one birth at a time.
I am a mom, singer of songs, midwife, learner, doer, and teacher. Not necessarily in that order.
I attend births in the Denver area, including Lakewood, Golden, Wheat Ridge, Arvada, Thornton, Northglenn, Broomfield, Boulder, Evergreen and Conifer. I am willing to travel further to areas with no midwives.
I offer a basic midwifery course with hand-on skills workshops. I also offer apprenticeships for qualified students.
COLORADO NEEDS MORE MIDWIVES!
