A Midwife Protects the Birth Experience
The hospital birth experience can be stifling, and lead to a cascade of unnecessary interventions when the natural process of birth is interrupted.
One of my major roles as a midwife is to try to protect that natural, physiological birthing experience. When you’re out of the hospital you can really allow the amazing human body to do its job and deliver the baby as it needs to.
I protect that experience.
I believe that most women can have a natural, unmedicated birth outside of a hospital setting, and I believe this experience should be made available to women. I gave birth to my own two daughters at home in a time when a home birth experience was very hard to come by.
Experience and Credentials
I’ve served pregnant, laboring, and birthing women for 30 years; and I have attended over 500 home and birth center births. I began my career as a Registered Nurse in labor and delivery, and that experience gives me a set of medical skills and experience that enriches my current role as a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM).
I’m a licensed midwife (LM) in Texas and New Mexico, and have an active RN license in California. I’m also a member of the Midwives Alliance of North America, and I have served as a senior midwife and academic instructor at Maternidad La Luz, a freestanding birth center on the Texas/Mexico border.
I specialize in VBAC / HBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean section / home birth after cesarean section) and I can work with Lynn Arnold for special circumstance births (breech, twins). If you are looking for a birth center experience I can deliver you at The Retreat Birth Center in El Paso.
My passion for wise woman care extends beyond pregnancy and birth: I also offer homeopathic skills and herbal knowledge, as well as well-woman annual checkups.
I grew up in Arizona, so I feel connected to the Texas/New Mexico area and cultures.
I love being able to communicate with my clients in English and Spanish, and I have a passion for deepening my Spanish skills. On my down time I like to get outside to hike and ride my bike!
