The day your baby is born is one of the most exciting, important, and joyful days of your life. Midwifery care is unique in recognizing birth as a natural, normal, and healthy event. Midwifery includes comprehensive prenatal care, home birth, and postpartum care. Included is extensive information on nutrition, exercise, prenatal testing, and newborn care.
As your midwife I am dedicated to you.
Pregnancy and childbirth are normal, healthy, physiological processes. Your home is the ideal environment for birth to unfold naturally. As an educated, professional, skilled practitioner, I respect the natural rhythm of the birth process and believe strongly in our ability to give birth. I am trained to take appropriate action when necessary and do refer accordingly when medical attention may be necessary beyond what can be provided in the home. As your care provider I support you and your family with open dialogue about risks, benefits, and alternatives around your choices during pregnancy, labor, birth, and the postpartum period.
I am happy to offer Nantucket women well woman care in the comfort of your home.
