Every person deserves to have their wishes met in their journey towards parenthood.

Competence

We are continually staying up to date on current research and guidelines, paying closest attention to good evidence based research. Our CPR and NRP (neonatal resuscitation) certifications are always current and we refresh our skills regularly through classes, practice sessions and discussions with other midwives.

Flexibility

By meeting our clients where they are at emotionally, physically, and economically we tailor our practice to each individual client and family.

Compassion

Compassion is a cornerstone of our practice. We bring our full hearts to our work and never allow ourselves to forget that each birth is unique and a profound right of passage for our families.

Intuition

intuition is a universal and essential tool of the midwife. At homeborn we honor our intuition as care givers and allow the heightened intuition of our birthers to help us fine-tune each individual's care.

Trust

In Today's birth culture, Fear reigns supreme. by holding trust and understanding of the physiological, spiritual, and social changes that accompany pregnancy and childbirth, we create a container in which our families can discover their innate wisdom, strength, and ability to birth without fear.
