I am excited to offer concierge-style home birth services in greater Houston!

Introducing my practice, the Home Birth Midwifery Service. Comprehensive, concierge-style, personalized maternity care in the privacy, comfort & convenience of your home.

I am an experienced midwife of 24 years, having practiced in 4 states (TN, VA, UT, TX). From 1993 to 2012, I served exclusively home birth clients, then began adding birth center birth experience to my resume (2012-2017). In May 2015, I had the privilege of catching my first grandchild at home in Utah.  What a JOY!   Later that year, I accepted a position with a Houston birth center, relocating there in Dec 2015 and completing my tenure in Nov 2017.

Caring for women through their childbearing year is indeed my calling. It is a powerful, sacred responsibility that I take very seriously and hold very close to my heart & soul. Helping women to become mothers and helping parents to nurture their children is my life’s work.

In addition to midwifery care, I offer a myriad of additional services to my clients including: belly-casting, prenatal & postpartum massage, infant massage instruction for parents, and newborn hearing screening. I also coordinate gender-reveal celebrations, blessingway celebrations, first moon & red tent celebrations for those interested.

I have the distinct honor of having renowned midwifery leaders and advocates as friends, including the Farm Midwives: Ina May Gaskin, Carol Nelson & Sharon Wells; MANA Vice President, CPM & Dr of Osteopathy, Sarita Bennett; Spinning Babies ~ Shoulder Dystocia Guru, CPM, Gail Tully; and BEST Skills Instructor, CNM, Andrea Dixon!!

As a midwifery Mentor/Teacher, I conduct Midwifery Skills Workshops, offered to the community of student midwives, throughout the year. I have trained many students and have had the privilege of seeing 7 apprentices become CPMs, licensed in four states, with another two apprentices preparing for their “big exam” and to receive their CPM credential in 2018.

About Me…

I was born in 1962,  (yes I’m over 50!)  in the year of the Tiger, under the astrological sign of Aquarius.  What an awesome combination!  I am an “Army Brat” raised across the country, “from sea to shining sea.”  I have lived in and/or traveled through most of the lower 48 states and Hawaii in the half century I’ve transversed the planet.

I am the mother of four awesome adults (2 delivered by OB’s and 2 caught by midwives: one at birth center and one at home). I am a crunchy-on-the inside, glitter-encrusted-on-the-outside, home birther, former homeschooling mom, lovingly crowned as “Fairy Grandmother” by my daughter and called “BaBette” by my granddaughter.

I am the consummate “DIVA”  (if you cut me I bleed red glitter).  Lover of fashion, make-up, stiletto heels, mani-pedi’s, and ALL things “sparkly!”  I adore Lady Gaga!  I enjoy using technology, having fully embraced being a techy-midwife (smartphones, computers and electronic medical records) all the while holding tight to traditional midwifery.  I love to teach and enjoy the challenge of public speaking and lecturing, which I hope to do when I “retire” from catching babies.
