Who we are:

Two licensed midwives who value autonomy and shared decision making in birth.

What we have to offer:

comprehensive prenatal, birth, and postpartum care for those desiring a home birth

doula services in home, birthing center or hospital and

placenta medicine (encapsulation, tinctures, salves, etc.)

What we know is true:

  1. Bodies were created to grow, birth, and nurture babies

  2. When well supported, birth almost always unfolds organically without intervention

  3. Birth works! As mothers who have cumulatively given birth vaginally a total of 5 times, we trust the process!

  4. We want to help guide you on your journey to parenthood, whether it is your first baby or you are a seasoned mama of many

You are likely a safe home birth candidate if you:

  • are pregnant

  • are curious about the power of unmedicated/natural birth

  • are seeking a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean)

  • are pregnant for the first, third, or eighth time

  • are over or under the age of 35

  • are interested in water birth

  • want to help change the culture of birth, away from fear and back to empowerment,

    by giving birth in the environment of your choice

...women who labor on their own terms and triumph in spontaneous birthing
will mother in a fiercely independent fashion, with strength and inner certainty
spilling into every other aspect of their lives.
