|A Little About Me|
|My mother had five of her eight children in France, under the expert care of midwives. Upon her return to the United States, she not only opted for midwifery care, but a homebirth. I was twelve at the time, but shortly after my brother’s birth in 1987, I knew that this was what I wanted to do.I began my apprenticeship in March, 1996. After a leave of absence while traveling abroad, I resumed my apprenticeship in Greenville, SC under the sponsorship of the midwife who had delivered my brother thirteen years before. During that time, I met Linda Weaver (also an apprentice.) We so enjoyed working together that shortly after she licensed, we began working as a team. We have continued to work together since my licensure in November of 2004. Linda and I share the same values, ethics, and philosophies of birth. We work well as a team, and enjoy ministering to women together. We also enjoy the many benefits of having more than one licensed midwife as part of the birth team. Not only do we benefit, but I feel that there are many benefits to the expectant parents as well.
Through the years, I have had the privilege of delivering some of my nieces and nephews, and the children of many of my friends. I LOVE watching “my” babies as they grown, and one or our greatest pleasures is working with the same families over and over again. I am on #6 in several families.
