“Midwife means 'with woman' and I feel honored to be a partner with women and their families through this amazing life event. Pregnancy and birth are powerful times, and when we act as a team to address the mind, body, and spirit we can optimize that power and strengthen the individual woman, their family, and our communities. Each woman is unique and deserves respect and accurate information based on the best evidence available to make informed decisions as they travel their path to motherhood.”
