Welcome! I am a midwife and monitrice in Columbus, Ohio. My focus is on home birth and supporting families planning a hospital birth as a monitrice. I am happy to support families who have an interest in water birth. I offer Birthing From Within group education classes in the central Ohio area. I’m a huge believer in meeting families where they are and supporting them in the childbirth year. I have two children, Oliana and Silas. Silas was born at home after a cesarean, HBAC (Home Birth After Cesarean) or VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean). Community was important in healing and building me up as a mother during my early parenting years and community is what drives me today.
