Labor & Delivery Services

Every mother will be given the well-deserved opportunity to labor and deliver in the manner and position in which she chooses. Every baby will be provided the best possible, gentle transition from the womb into the loving arms of mom. I'm not restrictive with time, and work with you patiently throughout your labor. However long it takes I will make sure you and your baby are safe and well taken care of along the way.

Early Labor 

You'll contact me as soon as any signs of labor have begun, or what you feel is the possibility of labor beginning. Usually you and your partner or friends will  labor on your own at the beginning. We will be in close touch via phone.

If you go into preterm labor I will be with you in the hospital to inform and support you through your birth. I believe strongly in women being empowered through their birth experience no matter who they choose as their care provider or where they choose to deliver. Because of this I offer prenatal care to all women wanting to be educated about the journey they are embarking upon.
