About

Professional Statement

I believe a woman is the expert of her body. I see my role as a certified nurse-midwife is to present information to women, and support them as they make health care decisions based on this information. I love so many aspects of being a midwife, from contraception, well woman care, menopause, teen health, IUDs, implants, pre-conception care and of course pregnancy and birth! I love getting to know my patients and understanding what they want to get out of their visits with me.
