Integrity

Even though this means I won’t gain a client, I gain peace of mind each time I suggest that a healthy pregnant woman reach out to our local, free standing birthing centers and home birth midwives for their pregnancy care. Its simply a matter of integrity. I am devoted to pregnant people – and thier babies. They deserve the care that offers the best possible outcome.
