“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”---Christopher Robin (A.A. Milne)
Bringing a baby into this world is both precious and powerful. A midwife enters a woman’s life when she is undeniably vulnerable and, simultaneously, incredibly strong. I love serving women in that time. The joy and sense of wonder as a family welcomes their baby into the world is miraculous!
I am currently on staff at Gentle Beginnings Birth Center in Hurst and attend homebirths around the metroplex. I currently serve as Vice-President for the North Texas Midwives Association and Board Secretary of the Association of Texas Midwives. I have been attending births since 2007. Prior to realizing my calling to midwifery, I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of North Texas and spent 5 joyful years teaching Junior High students with learning differences. The Lord has given me 4 beautiful children, all born at home with midwives. With my own pregnancies and births, I learned the value of excellent midwifery care and strive to provide that level of care to my clients.
It is my role to monitor the progress and health of your pregnancy and birth as well as support, counsel, educate, and partner with you as you care for yourself and baby. My focus will be on prevention rather than intervention. It is also of utmost importance for you and your family to take responsibility for your health as well as your baby’s.
I would consider it a blessing to participate in your journey to the birth of your baby!
