My passion for birth began as a child, fostered by my being the oldest of seven children. It wasn’t until after the births of my own three children that I began exploring the culture of birth in America. Seeing all the options available to women today I was particularly moved by the Midwifery Model of Care. I started apprenticing with several area midwives providing me with a whole spectrum of experience to draw upon within my own practice.
I have been assisting women to safely deliver their babies in the comfort of the home, or birth center, since 1997. Natural childbirth promotes a healthy baby, a healthy mother, and an immediate bonding experience for the entire family. My holistic approach to midwifery care stems from the belief that pregnancy is a natural state of health. This belief has been reinforced by the 1000+ births I have attended throughout the years.
And I’m a mom too …
“I am so glad that we were able to have a homebirth. It is the best decision we have ever made. I cannot imagine birth any other way. I could not have done it without the loving support of Ginger and the rest of her team.”
– Erin C.
“Ginger was a great support to me through the pregnancy. I really appreciated it since this was my first birth and I was terrified of all the possibilities.”
– Amy P.
“With Ginger, I feel like my husband and I can be in control of our birth. She’s a very pleasant and mild-mannered, sweet person, and I trust her ability and her judgment completely.”
