I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2004 with a degree in health education. I had my first birth unmedicated in the hospital. I certified as a Bradley Method childbirth educator in 2008, and I had my next three babies at home with a midwife.. I have experienced many labor scenarios personally, and have helped at over 240 births in home, birth center and hospital settings.
Since 2011, I have been certified as a labor doula. In 2018 I started an internship with Mom's Milk BCS and passed the IBCLC exam to become a lactation consultant in 2020.
In 2021, I started midwifery school through the Association of Texas Midwives. I completed the three year education component while training as a student midwife at a busy birth center and a home birth practice. I passed the NARM exam in the fall of 2023 and got licensed as a midwife in Texas in December 2023.
As a midwife, I see clients in their homes for their prenatal care. I bring my background as an educator to help prepare you for your home birth. In the event of a transport, I go with you to the hospital. My years as a doula come into play there to help advocate for you. Postpartum, my background as an IBCLC will also help you with your breastfeeding goals.
With prenatal visits that last an hour, you have ample time to ask questions and build a relationship of trust with your midwife.
I have been attending births since 2008. I have helped a wide range of labors and births and love helping mothers reach their goals for their labors.
Postpartum & Breastfeeding
My midwifery clients receive postpartum care for mother and baby in their home. I offer home visits for breastfeeding support as an IBCLC with Mom's Milk BCS.
