Ginger’s Story

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 …
