I'm a phase 2 midwifery student working towards becoming a licensed midwife in Michigan. I cannot and do not currently offer services as a solo practicing midwife. However, I do currently assist multiple midwives as their student. If you'd like to work with me in this type of role, you will need to hire one of my preceptors to attend your birth. Any work I do would be overseen and supervised by them. To view my resume click here.
Core Beliefs and Philosophy of Care
I believe all births should have one thing in common: women should feel empowered, autonomous, and supported no matter where or how they choose to give birth. I believe the mother and baby are one, going through this life experience together. I believe the way we are born can impact us for life, as well as future generations.
I believe every woman and her journey through the childbearing year is unique. I believe in seeing and serving each woman for the individual that she is; body, mind, and spirit. When these areas are cared for, a midwife is setting up a mother and her child to have the highest chance for a successful, non-invasive, empowering birth and healthy postpartum experience.
I believe pregnancy, labor, and birth are not only sacred, but natural physiological events in a woman's life. I believe in practicing a strong respect for a woman’s intuition over her own body and baby. Because of this belief, I believe in allowing birth to unfold as it's meant to, using a hands-off approach with minimal technological interventions unless it becomes wanted or medically necessary to do otherwise. I believe the human body is designed for pregnancy and birth. Birth is as safe as life gets and is meant to work when no one is there.
