I came to midwifery 24 years ago, with the homebirth VBAC of my second child. This transformative experience led me to help other women desiring a VBAC, and then to formal midwifery training.
I attended Maternidad La Luz Birth Center and Midwifery School in 2000-01. Upon graduation and certification, I joined a homebirth practice in Las Cruces, New Mexico, where I was a primary birth attendant for 5 years. I took a 2 year break from homebirth to work as a staff midwife and teacher in Maternidad La Luz, but my heart and soul have always been in homebirth and I now am embracing the joys and challenges of my own homebirth practice.
I am a CPM, certified by the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM), and am licensed to practice midwifery in the states of Texas and New Mexico. I have additional training and certification in Neonatal Resuscitation, adult CPR, and IV therapy.
While my primary practice involves homebirth, I strongly believe that every woman should have the resources, freedom and support to choose her place of birth. To this end, I provide Childbirth Preparation Classes designed to help parents explore and choose their birth options, and I also provide Labor Support for parents who wish to birth in a hospital setting, but with some of the benefits of midwifery care.
