PROFESSIONAL OBJECTIVE

Serving mothers since 1994 as a doula and midwife, it is my honor to empower families to experience natural childbirth in a warm loving environment. I believe in a woman's body to deliver a baby naturally and safely in the setting of her choice. I have a birthing center in Rockwall and also attend home births. I am a Christian and for those who share my faith, I love to bring prayer and praise to the birth I am invited to assist. As my midwife taught me years ago, if a woman is allowed to make her own healthcare choices, most births can be a beautiful and non-invasive celebration of life!
