Each woman is the creator of her own birth process. This belief is the foundation of my practice as a midwife. There is no wrong way to have a baby, just a difference in the approach and options we have available. I am here to offer an approach that allows women to make their own informed decisions in the care process that takes place during this special time. By taking responsibility for our own health decisions, we have the opportunity to learn more about our basic needs and functions as human beings and can therefore make choices that correspond with our own best interests.
My path to midwifery began in 2006, when I attended a midwifery program in the state of Oregon. I returned to Wisconsin to apprentice as a student midwife, and during this time learned the art of midwifery from a variety of teachers. During my apprenticeship I was blessed to travel to Uganda where I had the privilege to work with traditional birth attendants and expand my skill set. I became a certified and licensed midwife in the state of Wisconsin in September of 2015, and am excited to work in this amazing community of birth professionals in the southeastern Wisconsin area.
