philosophy

The olive branch is a symbol of peace. It is a promise of beauty and healing after a storm. When I think back to my own pregnancies and the midwifery care I received during such transformative experiences, I feel surrounded by peace.

I strive to provide that same holistic, respectful and gentle midwifery in my own practice. Each of my clients' care is unique and individualized. I would describe my style of care as a balance of intuition and intellect, evidence and research, compassion and humility.

Each person deserves the right to choose how and where they will give birth. Olive Branch Midwifery provides access to full-service homebirth midwifery care. You are in charge of your story and I will work hard to encourage, empower and help you achieve a safe, comfortable and joyous experience.
