When I had my own children, I searched for midwifery care but was unable to find it in the rural area I lived. Later, I moved to Texas and discovered the Association of TX Midwives. I started school in September 2010. After graduation, apprenticing with four different midwives and passing the NARM Exam, I began looking for the best place to start my business. I moved back to MN to serve the rural population as well as urban. I enjoy collaborating with and educating birthing families. I truly believe that if you don't understand the choices you face in pregnancy and birth, then you actually have no choice.
