Watching my mother give birth at a young age has always been a special moment in my life. I guess I have really always been drawn to birth, because of that. However, it wasn't until I had my own child that I really knew I had to be a part of birth. After being a Phlebotomist for a few years and having my first daughter, I needed a change in career and a goal to accomplish. After a short period of searching, I found a couple of midwives to work with and began my 5 year journey to becoming a midwife. I am now in my final phase-my sixth year of apprenticing. Sharing in those most intimate moments with a mom when she meets her baby for the first time...I am blessed to be a part of that. Being called to this field is an honor. I now have 4 children with my wonderful, supportive husband. I'm excited for what the future holds for me in this amazing journey I have begun.
