It's through story that we understand the world. Jesus knew that to communicate His Word he must use parables, stories we could understand. I believe God has written all of our stories. I believe he is writing them still. He has called me to tell the stories of mamas and babies and daddies and families. He has given me a passion for birth and serving women. I am honored and tender with this gift and I offer you my whole self in supporting you and documenting your stories.
But a little about me before we meet.
I'm a mom to four awesome kids: 13, 10, 8 and a sassy 3 yr old.
I'm a ballet-mom, a reader, an activist. I love to research, garden, watch movies and take road trips. My ideal retirement scenario would be to work at Plymouth Plantation in MA and live in a tiny house near the Cape.
I love airports. And flying.
I believe in remembering the 30 seconds of good in 5 minutes of bad.
I make lists ALL. THE. TIME. But lists like this are hard.
A hobby of mine is making up slang. I don't really like to cook, but I do like to bake and make soup.
I REALLY LOVE "Little House on the Prairie" books. I've been reading them aloud to my kids (since my oldest was born) just to have an excuse to reread them.
Sometimes I think I had too many kids. Sometimes I think I don't have enough.
I was an urban farmer for several years and I used have a cloth diaper and boutique handmade clothing business.
I almost dropped out of college to be a midwife. One day I'll be catching babies.
Yes, I still kind of feel like that 7 yr old girl who wanted to be EVERYTHING.
I never thought I'd be in the South this long, now I never want to leave.
I actually like public speaking. I used to give presentations to highschool students as a college recruiter when I was in college.
One day, when my kids are grown, I will be a missionary midwife.
Want to know if I am available?
Let's get together. I take a limited numbers of births each month, but I want to get to know you and help you in any way that I can with your birthing journey. I love coffee. I love to chat. Let's chat over coffee, tea, maybe even a scone or two.
