Bio

I am a birthkeeper. Knowledgeable and respectful of the physiological birth process. I am a wife, mother of 4 boys & server of women. I attend home births and unassisted home births this includes VBACS. I also can teach women how to perform their own prenatal care at home. I believe in birth & I believe in you. I will support you to the best of my capabilities.

Mantra

I truly believe in autonomy. A woman should birth in any way that she sees fit. Birth should be unhindered and intuition led.
