I am a licensed midwife in Chester who is thrilled to assist women in having happy, healthy babies.
As a licensed midwife, I have over 25 years of experience helping women through the prenatal, labor and birth processes. Despite my extensive experience, I am still in awe of how unique and special every birth is.
Today, midwifery blends evidence-based practice and the personalized art of woman-to-woman care. As a licensed midwife, I work with women and their families by sharing my knowledge and experience and honoring their birth choices. I believe my role is not to direct you, but to be there for you as a source of guidance and support during your journey. The best way to ensure a healthy, safe, and happy birth is to be actively involved in all the responsibilities and choices that affect you and your new baby.
Many of the women I work with in Chester, South Carolina choose to give birth at home. In many cases, I encourage home birth because it allows you to set the tone for the process and deliver in an environment that is comfortable and familiar. By giving birth at home, you are also allowed to move around as labor progresses, choose who will be present at the birth, and include siblings to the point you feel comfortable.
If you would like more information about giving birth at home and my role as a licensed midwife, I am ready and waiting to help. I look forward to your inquiry or call!
