it’s nice to meet you
I believe birth is a normal, safe, and natural process and being a midwife is much more than just catching babies. Birth is a sacred process that every woman should be able to experience surrounded by love, support and options. As a midwife I strive to provide a safe, nurturing space for women to feel empowered throughout their pregnancy and birth. I want to give your baby the gentlest entrance into the world.
When I was a little girl I would put my plastic play stethoscope to my papa’s beer belly and tell him I was listening to the baby in his tummy. He always played along. I’ve known my whole life that I wanted to help women have babies. My journey to supporting women began when I attended Grand Canyon University to receive my Bachelors of Science in Nursing. Upon graduation, I began working in the Couplet Care unit as a Registered Nurse where I stayed for a year before moving to the Labor and Delivery unit. I had the privilege of serving women through all sorts of birth stories before I became pregnant with my own daughter, Caroline. In a last minute switch to home birth, I discovered a new passion for supporting women to deliver their babies at home… and although my plastic stethoscope was really nice, I’m so proud today to hold a real fetal doppler to pregnant mother’s bellies as a Certified Professional Midwife.
I absolutely love this sweet family of mine…
I am an Arizona native and love living in the sunny desert! I married my husband John in 2019. In 2020, we welcomed our sweet daughter, Caroline into the world and our newest edition, Beckett, arrived in February 2022. If I’m not at a birth you can probably find me chasing Caroline around the house or hanging out in the pool!
MY CLIENTS HAVE THE SWEETEST THINGS TO SAY
Your hands were the first to touch my daughter. You showed genuine excitement as my girl entered the world. You helped me feel confident in my ability and you made me feel like a friend. You were a large part of making my dream birth a reality and I couldn’t dream of a better team.

THE HEART BEHIND WHAT I DO
As the coronavirus pandemic began, my husband and I switched to homebirth just weeks before my due date. We knew this would be the only way I could have the support system I knew I needed to deliver our daughter unmedicated and without interventions. I have always had a passion for supporting laboring women without unnecessary medical intervention, but after experiencing my own home birth this passion grew exponentially! I quickly left my position as a labor and delivery nurse in the hospital to start my path to becoming a home birth midwife, where I felt I would be able to best support birthing women and the natural birthing process.
