Over 18 Years Of Experience

I have been providing care to families since 1999—as a doula, childbirth educator, nurse, midwife, and nurse practitioner. In 2013, I started BirthRoot Midwifery and I have been providing holistic homebirth services and gynecological care since then. I have worked with hundreds of families from all walks of life, and I am passionate about providing care that helps pregnant and birthing people and their families feel safe, respected, and included. My approach is compassionate, respectful, and acknowledges the inherent beauty and strength of all types of families.

I practice according to the Midwifery Model of Care, which is founded on a deep respect for the normalcy of birth and for the uniqueness of each childbearing person and their family. This approach to care promotes health and helps prevent complications. Midwives who practice this model of care have excellent outcomes while providing safe individualized care. Read more.


Home Birth Is Safe And Affordable

Research shows that midwives are the safest care providers for the majority of expectant parents with healthy, low-risk pregnancies. Homebirth with midwives has a very high level of proven safety. 

Giving birth in your own home allows labor to progress in a safe, familiar, and comfortable environment. Homebirth can be a wonderful experience for first time parents as well as for people who have given birth before.

BirthRoot fees are comparable or less than other equivalent services in this area. I offer flexible payment plans and will work with you to come up with a plan that fits your unique needs. Contact me for more information.
