Promises to Keep Midwifery
Chrissy is a graduate of Birthwise Midwifery School, a MEAC accredited direct-entry midwifery school. She completed her training with Valerie Jacques at the Coastal Family Birth Retreat in the Fall of 2009. She is nationally certified as a CPM and state certified as an NHCM. She teaches emergency childbirth to the EMS services and has years of experience in lactation counseling. Chrissy has volunteered her skills in Haiti and is dedicated to the philosophy of gentle birth for every woman and child.
Personally, she is the mother of four children, three of whom were born at home. Her fervent wish is for every mom to have access to the birth attendant of HER choice, to feel cherished as she works to birth her baby and to experience fully the gentle entry of her baby into the world. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, yoga, running, gardening, cooking, and the occasional adventure overseas.
