As a midwife, I have witnessed over and over again, that if pregnancy and birth are allowed and supported to unfold as nature intended, without pressure and without interference, that birth can be safe, joyous and empowering. My goal as your midwife is to offer you information, care and support so that you can achieve superior health for yourself and your baby during your pregnancy, and to help you deepen your belief in your own power to give birth and to parent your child. Giving birth is a pivotal life process that offers you and your family the opportunity for great joy and growth and change. Such an important journey deserves the personal care, attention and company of a midwife. I look forward to serving as your midwife!
I studied midwifery at The Maternity Center in El Paso, Texas in 1980-81 and have been in practice for almost 28 years. My daughter was born at home in Putney in 1976, and I was privileged to be the midwife for my grandson and granddaughter, also at my home in Putney, in April 2005 and May 2008. I am a Certified Professional Midwife and licensed in both Vermont and New Hampshire, and have a master’s degree in counseling. I was active in the licensing of midwives in both Vermont and New Hampshire, as well as in the successful effort in both states to ensure that women wanting VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean) at home or in a birth center would have access to a licensed midwife for that choice. I serve as a Midwife Advisor to the Office of Professional Regulation in the Vermont Secretary of State’s Office and as the president of the National Association of Certified Professional Midwives (NACPM).
