Did you know that homebirth is safe, and can be safer, than a hospital birth in the US?
With a supportive midwifery model, you will be less likely to have medical interventions and a cesarean.
Safety is also dependent upon the skill of the midwife and the health of the mother. Staying within the proven standards for out-of-hospital birthing keeps mothers and babies safe.

I have a deep respect for the ability of women to birth babies, and for babies to be honored in their gestation and birth. I will push you to be informed and to be strong, because you can do natural birth like women around the world do every day. The midwife should be a quiet presence that helps create a conducive environment for this physiologic, primal thing of birth. However the midwife should have a confident authority at birth to facilitate things when they need guidance or intervention. I named my practice “Moonlight Midwifery” because babies come at night, when the world is calm, our stress is low, and babies get to come in peace. We are very intelligently designed and I like to first and foremost, honor this design, and use my training to interact with it in a safe and appropriate way to keep momma and baby safe.
After working at and starting birth centers, I’ve got a very good grasp of acceptable protocols. Data supports midwifery care and out of hospital birth, therefore I This is how I practice, and it actually is, above all, supportive of normal process of pregnancy and birth. Why? Because research tends to keep proving that things work just fine with us. Having safe parameters is also important, because no birth experience is more important than the life of the mother and baby. I deeply respect that pregnancy and birth may not proceed normally and I’ve been around a lot of that- after working in rural areas, with high risk clients, and in Africa. Therefore, I am a vigilant midwife.
