Midwifery is quality healthcare for pregnant women. As midwives, we’re very passionate about women being able to give birth in the atmosphere that they are most comfortable in.

You are not a machine.

The Creator is not a careless mechanic.”

About Kate

I fell in love with pregnancy and motherhood during my first pregnancy. Pregnancy was to me
a miracle and motherhood a joy. I fell in love with birth after my second child was born, this
time at home. I had never experienced anything so powerful, so challenging or so beautiful. I
knew then that I wanted to help other women to have empowering birth experiences. I wanted
to provide safe, supportive and loving care for women as they crossed the threshold into
motherhood. My passion for birth, for women and for babies has only increased over the
I have been supporting women during childbirth in the various capacities of doula, student
midwife, birth assistant, and primary care midwife since 2009. As a midwife, I look forward to
serving you as you plan your birth. My role is to support and educate you during pregnancy
and birth so that you are able to make informed decisions regarding your care. My goal is to
help you have a safe and fulfilling birth experience.
I believe that birth is inherently a natural process, and that it can be both beautiful and
empowering. Each birth experience is unique and every baby is a brand new miracle.
