Picking the best midwife for you is important. Finding the one that fits your understanding of what you want, what you expect and just the knowledge of how to create the perfect birth for you. Let’s learn about Amy and Swiss Avenue Birth.
I begin training as a midwife in 1992. I was a young mother and after
working through most of my clinical hours was led to take a step back. I
came back to midwifery in 2015.
I decided after much thought and prayer that I best fit into the birth
world as a CPM. I really always wanted to work with women who desired a
physiologic birth experience.
I believe that our bodies are beautifully designed to grow and nurture
healthy pregnancies. I respect that all physiologic processes can need
holistic or medical intervention from time to time.
I have attended over 600 and been the primary midwife for over 300.
