I have been working with pregnant women and babies since 2008 when corporate downsizing let me pursue my passion of midwifery full time. I am a Florida Licensed Midwife (LM) and a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM). I am also certified in CPR and NRP, neonatal resuscitation program. Being a home birth baby myself, seeking a midwife for my own pregnancies was an easy choice. I have two beautiful girls, Samantha age 11 and Megan age 9. Both were born in water in a birth center in Ft. Myers. I breastfed, co-slept, used clothe diapers and carried my babies in slings. I have been privileged to have welcomed over 130 babies into this world as a licensed midwife and have attended over 300 births since I started this journey of helping moms and babies. I would be honored to use my knowledge and experience to help you not only have a healthy pregnancy but have the tools to care for those Sweet Babies.
I started Sweet Baby Midwifery, LLC in order to provide one-on-one, personalized care for women and their families during their pregnancies. All family types and dynamics are welcome. You'll find only support here! Anyone you choose is welcome to participate, especially children. I follow the Midwifery Model of Care which basically means that pregnancy isn't a medical disease. Birth isn't a procedure. Home birth is a safe alternative for low-risk women. I have a great relationship with a local doctor who provides prenatal consultation services, if needed. Once accepted into midwifery care, we will work together to keep you as low-risk as possible. I believe in treating things naturally and prevention is the best treatment. So many things in pregnancy can be prevented with a good diet, enough protein and water. Healthy pregnancy equals healthy baby.
