I am a Licensed Midwife, Natural Childbirth Educator, Birth Monitrice, and Placenta Encapsulator. I am passionate about educating families about their choices. I believe that no matter where a woman chooses to birth, it is her right to choose what is appropriate for her body and her baby. I bring a balance of compassion and trust in the birthing process, paired with a respect for the current medical research and medical standards. I practice evidence-based midwifery, but believe that is through connection and individualized care, that a woman and her partner can truly be served. I am ecstatic to be serving the women and families of the North Bay, and do so with joy, gratitude, and humility.
3 day postpartum / well-baby visit
baby weigh-in, 3-days postpartum
Baby weight check! Breastfed babies can lose up to 10% of their body weight, and still be in the range of normal. But daily visits in the first few days of postpartum ensure that that weight loss doesn't exceed 10%.
We meet again little one ... but this time, on the outside <3
All my little helpers ... I saw all three of them take their first breaths!
