My Areas of Practice

I specialize in the care of women, teens through menopause.  My practice is a blend of well-woman annual care, problem-solving visits, prenatal care, labor and birth care. 

Water birth, unmedicated birth and helping you with self care and healthy pregnancy behaviors is my passion.  I am always supportive of women making informed choices about their care.  I enjoy having the full range of resources available as needed for your birth and utilizing the interventions that are available when appropriate.

Assisting you with a healthy and happy relationship with your new baby is important to me and a big part of that is supporting your pregnancy and post-partum mood changes.

My wonderfully supportive husband and my 5 amazingly strong and beautiful children are the reasons for my joy.  In addition to being my career, midwifery is my passion and my hobby.  My other interests include knitting and gardening.

I have also become involved in the MN Maternal Mortality Review Committee for the Minnesota Department of Health.  We are working on ways to improve the ways in which maternal mortality is recorded and reported in our state and we are reviewing trends that indicate an increase in this problem.  Out of this work, I have become more interested in the problem of perinatal mood disorders and have become interested in international midwifery work projects.
