How can I help make your birth a safer, more satisfying experience?
My goal as a traditional but certified professional midwife is to provide information and consultation during the prenatal months that will help you to have a natural, healthy pregnancy and birth. I can assist you in learning more about the role of nutrition, abstaining from harmful prenatal influences, maternal and fetal health and development, and alternative remedies. I maintain a lending library for clients and encourage you to become a learner and a more informed consumer of maternity care and practices. Midwifery care assists low-risk mothers by approaching pregnancy and birth as a normal event.
My goal as a lactation counselor is to reach every mother possible and instruct and support her to help make breastfeeding successful.
