Homebirth and Childbearing Services for women in the Austin Area
I strongly believe that pregnancy and birth is a normal healthy event and feel families should be treated with respect and encouraged to make choices fitting to their lifestyles and values.
It is my mission to create a place for relationship building and where your choices are honored.
Family-Centered midiwfery combines expertise and knowledge with wisdom of the heart to give your family the comfortable, safe and positive experience that all babies and parents desire and deserve. I consider it a true honor to serve our clients through their individual journey in pregnancy, birth and beyond.
With Family-Centered Midwifery women can give birth and receive health care that respects their dreams and encourages their strength. Our staff believes birth is normal and an emotionally powerful experience. I believe that when a woman and her family are involved in making decisions about their care, they are more equipped to meet the challenges of parenthood. I feel a woman is best served through information, partnership, and trust between client and midwife.
Since 1997, I've been serving women in birth and prior to that (1985-1999) I worked in Family Practice and Pediatrics as a nurse (LVN). I became a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) through the National Assosciation of Registered Midwives and have been Licensed in the State of Texas to practice midwifery since 2000. Feel free to read my professional biography.
I believe birth at home is safest with two well trained midwives. I have a wonderful working relationship with several Austin and Hill Country midwives and will hire one of them to attend your birth with me.
I have offices located in South Austin and Blanco , Texas and I offer midwife services for the Texas Hill Country (Austin, Blanco, Dripping Springs, Fredericksburg, Marble Falls, Burnet, San Marcos, Kyle, Buda, Wimberley, Canyon Lake, and Spring Branch). Please contact me for any questions: (512) 924-8265 or if you would like to meet for a free consultation.
