My passion is to help women promote their own wellness and that of their families, drawing on their mental, emotional, physical and spiritual strengths. This mind-body-spirit philosophy includes empowering women to explore and nurture all areas of their lives to allow for the optimal balance of health and well-being. Hence, live joyfully.
November, 2019 update: I will be taking a break from taking home birth clients, beginning in June 2020. In keeping with my stated mission (above) I am currently enrolled in Chris Kresser’s ADAPT practitioner program in integrative medicine and ancestral health. I look forward to helping women promote their own health and that of their families in broader and deeper ways as I progress through this program. Stay tuned here and 13th Moon Midwifery FB page for more information as my practice evolves.

Words cannot express how grateful I am to have met you and had you care for my baby and me during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. I am forever changed, and so is my family as a whole, all for the better, after my home birth. I cannot imagine having a baby any other way now! And feel so blessed to have had such an incredible birth team – so respectful, supportive, loving, and experience and trustworthy. Thank you for making it all possible! ~ Carmelle
I wanted to express my deepest gratitude for the services you provide, which give women like me the greatest gift a mom can get – the confidence and security to have a “good” birth. Although my babies will never remember their entry into this world I do believe the sanctity that filled the air they first breathed leaves a permanent mark in their hearts. Our world could use more good beginnings and good ends – so thank you for all you do. ~ Niki
I feel like you are so much more than a healthcare provider. While in your care I felt completely take care of, loved, nurtured and encouraged, and not just in my role as a home birther, but in my role as a mother too. You have been amazing, and I can never repay you for helping me achieve the kind of birth that I always dreamed of. I believe that everything that you told me and taught me helped in this process…Thank you for being you and doing what you do! ~ Margo
