“I serve an hour radius from Bargersville, IN.”
How did you become a Midwife, and why?
“My career in birth services first began as a doula certified through Doulas of North America (DONA) working for Community Heath Network and in private practice. I then apprenticed with a home birth Certified Nurse Midwife for 3 1/2 years and birth assisted for several other home birth midwives. I also spent 6 weeks in the Philippines working in a high volume birth center delivering babies as a student midwife under supervision. My journey into midwifery has been a long one starting with the birth of my own children. Each birth transformed me in so many ways, which gave me a calling to serve mothers and babies.”
What is your favorite part of home birth?
“I feel homebirth is a beautiful, sacred experience. I love watching birth unfold undisturbed as much as possible.”
