I have a fiery passion for birth work, families, and babies. I would love the opportunity to talk with you about the birth you are envisioning. I enjoy walking with families in a relationship of equals. I aim to empower you to make the best decisions for your own family by sharing my knowledge of evidence and practice with you. I bring fresh skills, safe care, deep knowledge, and all of my respect and love.
I offer complete pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and newborn care for low-risk normal pregnancies and clients. I have offices in Montpelier and Burlington and serve a 1.5 hour radius of either town. I accept VT Medicaid. I was the first CPM, LM in the state to become a participating provider with Blue Cross Blue Shield VT. I am in network with Cigna Healthcare. I accept self-pay clients. I strive to make my services widely available by maintaining a flexible fee structure including barter/trade opportunities. I offer free no-pressure in-office consultations, and I have regular daytime and evening office hours so you don't have to use your time off until after the baby.
I have worked hard to build skills and knowledge to provide midwifery model pre-conception care to LGBTQ clients or clients who have struggled with infertility. I offer guidance around assisted reproductive technologies including guidance around home IUI (intrauterine insemination).
There really is no one “kind of person” who plans a homebirth.
Whether you live in an apartment, a yurt, a trailer, or a house, eat calamari for breakfast, hate celery, listen to Katy Perry, wish you worked for the circus, listen to baseball on the radio, work in an office, enjoy coffee, secretly hate chocolate, feel younger than you are, or older than you look, like contra dance, can't carry a tune, love coloring in coloring books made for adults, or all/none of the above. Homebirth is for people like YOU!
