I would not have had such an amazing birth without Margie's loving, gentle assistance and encouragement. She intuitively knows precisely what you need at any given moment and is excellent at walking you through contractions with minimal discomfort. Although I labored naturally for almost 24 hours and did not end up with the natural birth I "planned," Margie was always supportive and cheered me on when hours and hours of pushing resulted in a c-section. She was also an amazing photographer! She grabbed my camera on the way to the OR and I had no idea that she was documenting our son's birth with amazing photos until well after he was born. I know I would not have been able to labor naturally for so long without her and my husband enjoyed her company the entire time--she is a quiet presence in the shadows but fierce when it comes to handling those contractions! Margie is a one-of-a-kind superhero!

"Imagine what might happen if women emerged from their labor beds with a renewed sense of the strength and power of their bodies, and of their capacity for ecstasy through giving birth."

“Best Experience of my life!”
Margie is absolutely amazing!! We took her childbirth education class, and she delivered our baby girl at home. Her presence is so calming, peaceful, and empowering at the same time. With her experience and extensive knowledge of birth I felt so comfortable and safe delivering at home. She is one of the most knowledgeable midwives that I know of. Her respect and knowledge of birth is both very comforting and empowering. I am so thankful that we had Margie at our birth, it was the best experience of my life!

"I cannot imagine a better person to walk someone through this amazing journey of becoming a mother!"
Margie was such a blessing to me during my pregnancy and childbirth. She provided information that ultimately saved my daughter's life, and she never failed to be a source of calming encouragement to me ... even when my carefully structured natural birth plan had to be thrown out the window in lieu of an emergency C-section! I trust her implicitly and cannot imagine a better person to walk someone through this amazing journey of becoming a mother!

"...Margie is definitely a great choice."
Margie was a great asset to my birth team. She was a source of wisdom and support throughout my pregnancy and attended my birth as my doula. If you're looking for a calm and caring woman to support and encourage you throughout your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum then Margie is definitely a great choice. She helped my husband and I advocate for our birth and that is priceless!

"...if you need a midwife, look no further."
When I met Margie in 2012, she was a student midwife at the birth center we were to have our daughter in. From the beginning, Margie let you know that she was there to help you, support you, empower you and respect your birth space. We used Margie for our child birth education classes as well. We felt prepared and ready to meet our daughter. On the big day, I progressed faster than expected, yet I wasn't worried. I was reassured that I could in fact do this. Less than an hour after our arrival to the birth center we became a family of three. During my postpartum time, Margie was always available when I needed help whether it was in regards to nursing, recovery or if I needed someone to talk to. Our family has so much love for Margie.....if you need a doula, child birth educator and/or midwife, look no further. Truly an amazing woman we are blessed to still have in our lives.

Margie is awesome! She tailored our childbirth education to fit our specific situation and provided such detailed knowledge! It was fun and informative! We opted for a one on one class and it was so convenient. Whether it's your first baby or your 5th, Margie will have great information to help you have your best birth.
