I've been fascinated with birth since I was very young when I witnessed horses and cats giving birth at our family's horse ranch. I also grew up with an OB/GYN father, so labor and delivery was part of our everyday household conversation. When I was pregnant with my first child in 2007, and anxious about childbirth, my husband and I took a 12-week natural childbirth class. This class and my own birth experiences awakened me to a perspective of birth that is based on informed choice and the mother's innate ability to birth with minimal interference.
I am trained through DONA International and have been assisting women in birth since 2010. I have degrees in Biology and Psychology and work part-time at Oceana Conservation District. I have two children and I love being a mom more than I ever thought I would. We live in Ludington, Michigan near Lake Michigan.
