About Me

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.

Christian Midwives International

The Georgia Midwifery Association

MANA (Midwives Alliance of North America)

NARM (North American Registry of Midwives)
