I am a Certified Professional Midwife with the North American Registry of Midwives, and a Licensed Midwife practicing in Utah. I have four beautiful children and a very supportive husband. Through the years, I have expanded my knowledge and experience of birth, breastfeeding, and the postpartum care of new mothers and babies. I recognize birth as a natural process of the female body, one that does not require routine interventions. We as midwives are here to guard birth and guide it as needed, only interfering when the mother or nature needs our help.
We have become such a busy society that new mothers and babies are often left on their own without the help of a mentor (this used to be the grandmother’s role) to teach and guide them through the learning processes of parents. This deficit of care can cause a difficult recovery and be a lonely time for the new mother. I hope to help women through not just childbirth, but also through as much of the childbearing years as I can.
