About Me

"The way a woman gives birth matters. It can affect the whole of the rest of her life." My particular emphasis is on education to support women towards an empowering journey. And my intention is to provide you with safe midwifery care based on researched information to help you make decisions that are best for you & your baby. I believe every woman & family are unique & I tailor my midwifery care and information to meet your individual needs. I think pregnancy & birth for most women are normal processes. They are also life changing events that many women & families find challenging. My midwifery care includes family support & education to prepare & help families through these life changes. Some women face extra challenges and I am experienced in working with complications. I work with other healthcare providers to care for women who require additional attention outside of normal pregnancy, labour or birth. I am in my 6th yr of practice and hold a post-grad certificate in midwifery.
