For Margie, midwifery is more than just a profession - it's a calling.
The birth of your baby is a day you will remember forever. And the months leading up to the birth are spent navigating your emotions, fears, hopes, and dreams. One of the things I love most about being a midwife is helping people resolve their fears so they can arrive at their birth choices from a place of strength, preference, and confidence.
My first pregnancy was not even close to a positive experience. I was scared out of my mind about what labor and birth would be like. Like many of the women I serve now, I had heard only the scariest things about birth. I was so pleasantly surprised — the birth of my first baby changed everything! It was powerful. Amazing. Bonding. Transformative.
My 2nd birth was even better. This time I hired a doula and took a great childbirth class. The impact of those 2 decisions was so positive, that I decided to become a childbirth educator and doula in 1995 after my 2nd son was born. In 1997, we were surprised with the arrival of our 3rd son who was born at a local birth center. The midwives who helped me birth also helped me realize the power of birth. Our 4th and final son was born in 2002 at home . . . and my love of homebirth and midwifery care was born.
I LOVE helping women gain the confidence and information they need to experience the transformative journey of birth. I remember how overwhelming (and scary) birth seemed. I can work with you, one-on-one to gain the confidence you need to have a great birth. My goal is to help you have a SAFE, HEALTHY, SATISFYING birth you will CHERISH for a lifetime.
