About Us

I am a Certified Professional Midwife and also a Utah State Licensed Midwife who currently serves women in St. George, and surrounding areas. I have assisted in the safe delivery of over 1200 babies. I still LOVE my work like the day I began. I also love to teach, speak, write, read and paint about birth. I believe midwifery to be a spiritual calling and would never attend a birth without the Lord beside me. I credit him for the many miracles I have witnessed. I also believe that undesirable things CAN happen in a mortal world, no matter where you choose to deliver. This is why I advocate and practice good prenatal care and a careful watch over labor and birth. I do not take chances. Every precaution is made to assure safety first. Although I believe in natural remedies and will usually use them first, I am also licensed to administer certain life-saving drugs in the case of an emergency. I am certified in neonatal resuscitation, CPR and I.V. therapy. Although there are risks and benefits to both hospital and "out of hospital" birth; I basically offer the best of both worlds by eliminating most "out of hospital" risks, and/or expensive hospital transports. This makes my services the "safest" choice for most women. Another factor worth mentioning, is my love and respect for babies as individual, feeling and aware beings. I hate how they are disregarded and mishandled at many birthing facilities. I treat each one as if their whole outlook on life is formed in those first precious moments. I believe in imprinting and bonding. I believe that fathers are important and necessary. I encourage them to be as involved in the birth process as they desire. I am there to help the father also.
