As a Certified Nurse -Midwives, we value and respect the life events, knowledge and wisdom that women bring to their healthcare experience. We believe that women have the right to choose their health care provider, be it a Physician or Certified Nurse-Midwife for their gynecologic/obstetric needs. We believe in the natural ability of a woman’s body to give birth. We use a low intervention approach, intervening medically only when necessary.

Our mission is::
o To provide the highest quality, comprehensive healthcare to women across the lifespan regardless of race, creed or financial status.
o To deliver individualized care while respecting a woman’s right to be a partner in her own healthcare decisions.
o To deliver healthcare driven by respect and compassion

  1. When I was pregnant with my daughter, my OB/GYN was in practice with a midwife. I kind of hoped she would be on duty the night I delivered because I like the idea of a midwife delivery. I ended up with the doc, though, and since I only had one child, never experienced a midwife-led birth. Nonetheless, I admire the work and appreciate those who do it. Thanks for blogging about it.

    • Appreciate the kind words:) I call this my “labor of love”. Bless you in your journey as a survivor! Funny enough (and I guess you know this) but I signed up to follow your Keeping-A Breast blog as I think that it will be an inspiration to some of my readers/women as well. Great thing about living life in the blog-o-sphere is that we can all be a support/inspiration in some way. Keep an eye out for my next post as I bet you will be able to relate 🙂


  2. I was blessed with a wonderful birth of my fourth boy under the care of Shauna and Mindy. I want to thank you all for giving women the opportunity to have our babies in relaxed, caring, and wonderfully natural environments! I would love to hear from any of you at my personal email address as I’m aware that you have all relocated. I’m not done having babies and I need to find you wonderful women!! Hope to hear from you soon.
    With love!
