I'm the wife of an awesome man, and a homeschooling mom of 4 littles. Recently, I found my passion in all things birth, babies, and breastfeeding.

I had two medicated hospital births without complications, but realized I wanted a different experience because something was missing. When we got pregnant with our third baby, we started down the same path of using nurse-midwives at the hospital. A friend of mine told me she was going to use a birth center so I decided to look into it as an option. We knew we needed to prepare for an out-of-hospital birth and that's when we found Birth Boot Camp. The class prepared us for what to expect, and gave us confidence to have a natural birth. After interviewing many midwives, we finally found the perfect one. We decided to pursue a home birth and God blessed us with our third baby, who was born at home, in a very exciting and life changing moment. It was his birth that taught me how empowering it can be to take charge of your birth. Your birth matters and you have the power to make it amazing. I want to help guide you on your journey to a satisfying birth.

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward.
— Psalms 127:3
