I am a mother of six from the ages of 28 to 9 year old twins. I have felt a deep connection to birthing women my entire life. My becoming a midwife is the culmination of over 20 years of dreaming and patience, while I raised my own family. I feel every birth is a sacred rite of passage, for you and your baby. In my care your wishes and desires will be respected while your health and the welfare of your baby will be safely guarded. I believe in the midwifery model of care, and most importantly, I believe in relationship-based care.
I myself am a proud VBAC mama! My first VBAC was in 1987 – yes that boy is 26 years old now! I also achieved a VBA2C in 1998. Vaginal Birth after a Cesarean is a choice I am very passionate about. This is a triumph like no other! It is healing and empowering. I fought for my own right to VBAC and I will do everything in my power to help you achieve yours. I have many references of VBAC and VBA2C clients who would love to share their success stories with you! Please just ask!
I have home educated my children for most of the last 25 years. I am an active member of Fort Worth Presbyterian Church, an amazing church that loves Jesus. In my spare time I love to read, visit tearooms and antique malls, quilt and garden. When I'm not at the birth center, I can be found on the sidelines cheering one of my teens, or snuggling up, reading to my dear ones.

For centuries and centuries, women have been birthing their babies at home surrounded by trusted women, female neighbors, friends, relatives and if especially blessed… a trained midwife.
Midwives have been trusted healers in their communities, ushering in life and ministering to families in death. The respected role of the midwife was well established for thousands of years, they have been celebrated in art throughout history… So what has happened? How did we move so far away from this sweet tradition to what is so traumatic for many families … a medical birth?
I want to be a part of bringing back this cultural norm. I trust birth. I trust your body to function as it was created. I trust you.
