Owner & Midwife

I am a wife & mother of 5, all naturally born  - 3 of them at home into the hands of midwives.  I consider it a privilege to be a licensed midwife in the State of Texas & owner of the Dallas Birth Center.  I believe in a mothers ability to give birth and respect the process of birth. I believe that midwives are the guardians of normal birth for low risk women and work hard to make sure the mothers in my care have safe, healthy pregnancies and powerful, restorative births. 

I started out my journey as a DONA certified birth doula in 2003 until I began midwifery training in 2009.  I received my academic education through the Association of Texas Midwives Midwifery Training Program . I was in an active apprenticeship with 4 different midwives & one Dallas birth center where the art of midwifery care was passed to me by some of the best midwives around! 

I graduated from ATM in September of 2011 and received my license in early 2012. I am a Texas Licensed Midwife (LM) and I hold a national credential Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) through the North American registry of Midwives. I decided to give back to the school I attended and am an approved preceptor for students/interns and grade coursework for new students. I am also an active member of the North Texas Midwives organization.
