Attends hospital births? All Hospitals
Enjoy helping families think through their choices, encourage open communication with their care provider, very comfortable being part of a team with hospital staff and helping to create a warm and supportive birthing nest within the hospital setting
Attends birth center births? All Birth Centers
Love working with midwives and staff at birth centers in helping families to have the support they need to birth in this setting
Attends home births? Any Home Birth
Three of my four children were born at home, so this is a setting that I love to support. We still prepare for all of our options, including possible transfer to hospital, but do that with conscious intent to birth at home
