The Wisdom of Homebirth 

Around the world and for most of human history, birth has been a community event where grandmothers, mothers, sisters, and aunts helped usher the next generation into the world with love, compassion, and skill.

Sadly, in America, much of this tradition has been lost.

The midwifery movement is about re-empowering women in birth by reminding them of their intrinsic wisdom and strength. This is offered through the support of a trusted and skilled provider who is available to personalize health care to fit the needs of the individual, respectfully and joyfully. Over the years, it has been demonstrated that families cared for within this model and philosophy have far more positive outcomes.

The midwifery care model values education and fully-informed choice, which means clients are prompted to ask the questions needed to make sound decisions about their health care.

Through a deep collaboration between midwife and family, we create an experience of respect and trust that honors the sacredness of bringing new life into this world while maintaining health and safety for all.
