I am the mother to three young men (23, 20, & 18).  Our oldest son was born in the hospital with a Midwife. Our next two babies were born at home with a Certified Professional Midwife (Alex in the water and Aiden on land). Home birth was life-changing for our family. I embraced natural birth, breastfeeding, babywearing, and parenting.  In 1995, I became certified as a Childbirth Educator and Doula. For four years, I worked at the Madison County WIC WIC (Women Infants and Children’s Program) as a lactation counselor. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Science of Midwifery and am a Certified Professional Midwife. I began Home4Birth Midwifery Services in 2001. Since 1997 I have maintained membership in the Indiana Midwives Association.  I hold my NARM Bridge certificate, am a certified lactation specialist, and a Certified Community Herbalist. Certified Lactation Specialist.

It is passion that fuels my life, and purpose that directs it. I am Believer, mother of four, and wife to a passionate husband. Life’s journey has lead me to a life of ministry, entrepreneurship, and birth work. My work as a Doula has been deeply influenced by my own natural births and breastfeeding journey. I birthed three of my children in hospital with pitocin sans pain management. My third birth ended with a postpartum hemorrhage. I was blessed to birth my fourth child at home with the guidance of Home4Birth. It was the birth I’d always wanted and the one I needed to heal from previous experiences. I currently serve the Greater Indianapolis community as a Birth Doula, Community Pastor of Village of Hope Church, and now as a Midwifery Student. My deepest desire is to serve mothers, children, and families, and for this work to affect the maternal and infant mortality rate amongst African-Americans. I hope that my work will extend the reach of holistic care to mothers and families who need it most. A servant at heart, I am excited for the opportunity to grow and serve with Home4Birth.
