Who Am I?

Welcome to Hands and Hearts Birth & Botanical!

My holistic approach as a Traditional Midwife combines compassion and knowledge with continuing education and training. I strive to provide my clients with the best care possible, utilizing both modern and traditional evidence-based information and methods to help balance their emotional and physical overall health and I am committed to helping each of them reach their goals.


Whether you're looking for well-woman or family health support, or pre- or post-natal care, I'm here to help you. Reach out today to learn more about how I can support your health or pregnancy journey.
