Heart-Centered Support

Does prenatal care feel like a maze? Do you feel prepared to give birth? Do you feel prepared to be a parent? Do you feel like you are missing something critical?


It is impossible to fully prepare with 15 minute prenatal visits. 


Do not let yourself experience preventable complications  or be exhausted with a new baby, looking back and wondering how it could have all been easier. Give yourself the support that you need and deserve.

I was a midwife before I had my own children, and still it was hard.

 

Laboring, giving birth, breastfeeding, newborn care, making parenting choices‚ÄĒall of it.¬†

Over the past 16 years, I've¬†cared for thousands of families‚ÄĒfrom large New York City hospitals to attending water births in Vermont.¬† As a Yale-trained, hospital-based midwife and clinical instructor¬†for resident physicians, I am well-versed in modern obstetrics.¬†My clients appreciate that I¬†blend my medical background with¬†a passion for holistic care.

Mad River Birth and Wellness

A new paradigm for pregnancy care.

 

The name "Mad River Birth and Wellness" comes from the beautiful valley where I live with my family in Vermont. On a side note, my second baby was born so quickly, he was nearly born on the banks of the Mad River! 

I started Mad River Birth and Wellness in order to create a critical added layer to pregnancy care. I know that most people are in dire need of more guidance, preparation, and heart-centered support.
