Pregnancy and birth are natural and healthy life processes. As your midwives, we will provide you with the information you need to make informed choices about the care you receive. Our mission is to support you and your family in having the best birthing experience possible.

This is a very sacred time in life, preparing to invite a new person into your family. It is with great honor that we look forward to playing a supportive role in your unfolding as parents to this new baby.

"The root of every culture's success lies in its birthing practices. Let's create a culture based on love and trust, on peace and compassion, on empowerment and respect. "  -Astrid Grove, Licensed Midwife
