Welcome to my website! Take a look around to find out more about home birth, water birth and about me.
If you’re healthy and considering having a home birth, it’s best to find a well-trained midwife with lots of experience that you trust and feel comfortable with. Having your baby in the comfort and peace of your own home can be deeply meaningful. See my Home Birth page for more information. I work with Santa Cruz Midwives providing all aspects of midwifery care.
Midwives provide full prenatal, birth and postpartum care for mamas and babies from conception until 6 weeks after the birth. Appointments are one hour long and we spend time discussing your pregnancy, your needs, your values and current best-practices in childbirth. You make informed decisions and choices about the care you want. This allows you to birth your family, your way, safely! Water birth is another option I offer and encourage. Many women find it can be really helpful for comfort and pain relief in labor and for giving birth. See my Midwifery Care page and Water Birth page for more details!
Research & Safety
If research on the safety of home birth is your thing, I have lots of that as well. Even in the last year, there’s been important new research demonstrating yet again the safety of home birth for healthy women cared for by well trained midwives.
Most of all, if you have any questions about your eligibility for home birth, (more than 85% of women are considered eligible for home birth) about home birth, midwifery or about me, or would like a free one hour consultation, contact us by email.
