“Pregnancy, birth and motherhood inspire and humble me every day. I am so blessed to get to do what I do.  I am a single mom to 2 awesome kiddos. When I’m not catching babies or napping after catching babies you’ll find me snuggling with my dogs and cats, trying to keep up with my kiddos or unwinding with Ecstatic Dance.”
