I received my Masters of Science degree in Nursing with a specialty in Midwifery from the Frontier Nursing University (formerly known as the Frontier School of Nurse-Midwifery). I’ve been in practice here in the greater Phoenix area for over 15 years, and have helped more than 2600 women birth their babies.
As a midwife, I have supported out-of hospital and natural birth for the past 40 years! I myself birthed all my children naturally! Two were born in a hospital, one in a freestanding birth center, and the last two were born at home.
I know full well the incredible victory of an un-medicated birth, in that moment that a woman knows exactly what she has just accomplished! A hard journey of labor and birth with a priceless reward! That’s the goal! A healthy mommy and baby and an intimate empowering experience for the woman and her family as they travel that journey together!
I spent 14 years as a childbirth educator, believing that the most prepared parents are the ones who will succeed in reaching their goal of an un-medicated birth. Prenatal education is vital for women and their babies to be the healthiest possible and for those same women to have the tools they need to cope with the marathon called labor! As you proceed throughout your prenatal care, you will find much of that education to be an integral part of each visit.
I founded Canyon Midwifery to make this experience available to all women who desire it and are appropriate candidates for out-of-hospital birth. Canyon Midwifery is here to inspire you, educate you, support you, and love you through one of the most intimate and personal experiences of your life!
