Since 1996, I've been supporting families through all kinds of pregnancies, labors, births, and new parenting experiences. I am grounded, nurturing, reliable, knowledgable, and accepting. Whether you are trying to decide how or when to get pregnant, are striving for a natural birth, are facing a high-risk or complicated pregnancy or birth, are struggling with your adjustment to parenthood, or just need a warm, experienced person to answer questions, to go to appointments with you, or to listen and offer reassuring and evidence-based suggestions, I can help you navigate the emotions, questions, and uncertainties of the childbearing years. Please contact me at the links below to find out more about ways I can assist in making your life a bit easier.
