Working with families during the childbearing years is my joy and passion. After working as a certified birth doula in a busy practice for several years, I was drawn into midwifery as an elegant and genuine model of care. I believe in a holistic approach to health and pregnancy, and I have a focus on care for all pregnant families, particularly those who identify as LGBTQ+. My background includes extensive knowledge about lactation, integrative health, herbalism, and nutrition. Birth and breastfeeding are such pivotal experiences in our lives, and it is a pleasure and privilege to assist families through them.
As a feminist and someone who believes in the strength of community and family, I believe that all pregnant people deserve high-quality and evidence-based care, with autonomy and shared decision-making. I offer homebirth midwifery care and lactation services for those who are breastfeeding and chestfeeding. I have sensitive, reliable backup care with the Denver Midwives Collective, a group of like-minded colleagues who follow the same protocols and philosophy as my practice.
In 2019 I founded CLAP for Lactation, an organization providing training for support people and professionals who work with families around the time of birth interested in having an excellent skillset and knowledge base for walking with families through their infant feeding lifecycle. I have a bachelor of science degree in integrative therapeutics. I am a Certified Professional Midwife, and graduated from a MEAC-accredited midwifery school with an associates degree in midwifery. I earned my IBCLC - International Board Certified Lactation Consultant certification in order to provide the families whom I'm honored to serve with the highest quality of care in breastfeeding support. I have learned so much from every family I work with, and it keeps me humble and receptive to new ideas!
If you're having a baby, give me a call - I love to help people out.
