I began attending births as an assistant in 2010, enrolled in midwifery school later that same year and have attended over 350 births since. In 2015 I graduated from National College of Midwifery with an associates degree in midwifery and passed the licensing exam to become a licensed midwife in California in 2016. I beleive that birth is a natural process that can have many variations of normal. I gave birth to all three of my children at home and became more interested in midwifery care as a career after my last birth and realizing the limited choices offered to women who do not fit into the classic definition of “normal”. I believe that women should have choices in their care; and that when women are encouraged and allowed to be an active participant in their care, that they come away from the experience much more empowered and satisfied.
