Welcome! I am a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and monitrice in Columbus, Ohio. My focus is on home birth and supporting families planning a hospital birth as a monitrice. 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 during the childbirth year. I offer water birth as an option for home birth and water labor support before going to the hospital.
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.
