As a nurse-midwife the focus of my care is on promoting health and maintaining wellness. My goal is to empower women to actively participate in their health. I believe women and their families should be included in healthcare decisions and informed of all options. Each woman has individual needs, goals, and preferences, and it is important to personalize their care accordingly.For most women pregnancy and birth are normal life events. My role during this time is to optimize the health of mom and baby while striving to provide the ideal experience for each family.
