Clients

Oh, how I love my clients!  These women, babies, and families teach me all about life. Since opening my practice in June of 2011, I have had attorneys, veterinarians, lab techs, nurses, nurse-midwives, home birth midwives, doulas, stay-at-home-moms, counselors, law enforcement officers, corrections officers, executives, herbalists, singers, actors, dancers, and so many more amazing women allow me to join them during their births at home.

I am privileged to witness these women as they begin to really take good care of themselves, sometimes for the first time in their lives.  They start eating deep green veggies and doing yoga, getting massages, and taking “me time.”  It is a beautiful thing.

I get to hold these women’s hands and hum or moan with them, as they focus inward, letting everything go, and relaxing into the beauty and mystery of birth.

I have the privilege of seeing couples come together in a way they never thought possible. I get to see men all misty-eyed at the power and beauty of their women and their babies. I get to be one of the very first people to get to touch the newest person joining us all on Earth. I get to be one of the first people to tell this new being how wonderful it is to be here, and how much love they will experience, and that their future is wide open. I get to bask in the presence of limitless possibility.

My clients remind me what it is to be completely human and completely Divine, all at once.
