The name "Tender Heart" comes from my core philosophy of Compassion.
We practice Compassion for self, for each other, for babies, for our process. We are committed to Informed Choice and Shared Decision-Making.
As a midwife:
I strive to serve families with sensitivity and openness. I maintain the most current knowledge and training in supporting healthy pregnancy and normal physiological birth. I empower you to learn and make your own decisions about your care. I help you nurture your baby's development and foster a peaceful and safe transition to outside life.
As an expecting parent:
Choosing to plan a home birth means you accept the utmost responsibility in making choices that are right for you and your baby. You want to understand as much about your journey as you can, while trusting in the wisdom of your healthy body. You value the opportunity for growth in the experience of bringing a new child into your family.
