Midwifery Services

I believe that pregnancy and birth are transformative experiences. It is a given that everybody's first priority is a healthy mom and a healthy baby. But that is an absolute minimum standard. Birth can - and should - be about so much more. I am committed to facilitating an extraordinary birthing experience for you and your baby. Every woman, every baby, every family, every birth is unique and special. It is my privilege and honor to attend women in birth.

I am a homebirth midwife based in the Belfast, Maine area. I serve families living in the midcoast area, including the communities of Rockland, Augusta, Bangor, Ellsworth and Belfast.
