Patient Care Philosophy
As a midwife, I value the role of supporting women to understand their health, know their own bodies and feel empowered to navigate the changes and choices that come over the course of the reproductive years. I enjoy getting to know my patients and see each individual as an expert in her own life. I strive to provide the most up to date, evidenced based care, so that together we can work to achieve an ideal state of health. I am genuinely passionate about normal pregnancy and birth and consider it a privilege to care for women and their families during this time.
Women’s health; healthy pregnancy and physiologic birth; breastfeeding; reproductive choices.
