Philosophy of Midwifery

Pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding are natural, God-given functions of the woman’s body. Birth itself is not a medical condition, but the normal process through which new life enters the world. For healthy women, giving birth at home in an environment that she is comfortable with, combined with skilled attendants, can be an optimal choice to ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience.

When allowed to follow its natural course, pregnancy normally results in the birth of a healthy baby with a healthy mother. I trust that ultimately God is in control and has designed the woman’s body to give birth.

Occasionally, a critical situation arises during pregnancy or labor which necessitates specialized care that cannot be provided in a home setting. In these cases, it is imperative that the trust and communication between the client and midwife be such that each has confidence in the decisions that are made.

My goal is to provide a safe, skilled option for those who desire to give birth outside of the hospital and to assist families in making informed decisions regarding their health care.
