I'll never forget the first time I talked to Hannah on the phone in May of 2020. She was funny with a southern accent and said, "I've heard you're probably full, but you're what I want, so I figured it was worth a shot." and then she laughed.  She was the matriarch of...

Iris and her husband, might just be the sweetest and most in love clients that I've ever had. They were always positive and willing to learn every thing about birth that I could teach them. They hired me early on and came armed with questions for each meeting, they too...

Jordan and I had been talking all day for the last few. She was post dates, feeling pressure from her provider and pressure from herself to make some kind of progress.

On the morning of 9/16/20 Jordan sent me a text that said, "I'm fine, but sad." She was hoping that he...

As they sat across from me on the couch, beautiful and awkward, their love for each other was palpable. It felt new and fresh and reminded me of how it felt with my husband when me first met.  As we discussed what a dream birth would look like there wasn't a strai...

Caitlyn started to feel a bit of pressure, so Michelle checked her before getting in the tub. It was 3:49am and her cervix was now 8cm dilated.  Caitlyn would experience transition in the tub, and in my opinion that couldn't be any more perfect of a place, for what...

At 6:30pm she messaged me back saying that they had gotten themselves into a pattern of every 7 to 10 minutes. She said she was still doing fine, but I live quite a distance from Hannah, so I decided to eat dinner and then head her way.  Hannah is a friend, and a fell...
