After the birth of my first child, I felt drawn to this miracle I had now experienced for myself. I called a doctor offering home birth and asked if I could apprentice with him and the nurse-midwife working with him. I still vividly remember that first birth, the mother's effort, the father's kind support, the wet crown showing more and more hair as the baby was born. Beginning as an apprentice making tea at home births, I received my Master's degree in nurse-midwifery at UCSF in 1985.
I started my midwifery practice 34 years ago, and am thrilled and gratified to be offering safe and joyful birth to my mothers and fathers at Alta Bates Hospital in Berkeley ever since. As an experienced and trusted midwife, I work well with the team of excellent back-up OB's and nurses in Labor and Delivery.
The Essential Care You Trust
There is little in this world that is more personal than the birth of your child. And unquestionably, there is no event more life-changing. I offer a complete commitment to the safe arrival of the most important human in your life. Before, during, and after the birth, I work with you and your family to address every clinical aspect of your obstetrical care. At the same time, I make sure the moment of birth is enriched by guidance and support. Childbirth is an exciting and thrilling event that surpasses all experiences. It is also scary and fraught with anxiety because, for the past nine months, you and your family have grown to love this person you have never met. It’s normal to be anxious. I offer comprehensive midwifery care as support to make the journey more comfortable and less worrying.
My years of experience mean I know what mothers are feeling and how best to address their concerns. There is nothing more important in the world than getting your baby safely into your arms. My obstetrical care training gives you peace of mind for the safe arrival of your child, and my midwifery care provides the personalized attention every mother deserves.
