Women birth best where they feel safest and most comfortable, which is often in their own home. Women's bodies are designed for giving birth. With good prenatal care, emotional support, and encouragement women are fully able to give birth naturally and safely at home. Studies have shown that planned homebirth with a Certified Professional Midwife is just as safe as birth in a hospital or birthing center for low risk women. As a midwife I emphasize good nutrition and regular exercise as well as trusting the Lord. I want to empower parents to make informed decisions and have confidence in their ability to take responsibility for their family's care.
