About Nancy


Birth is a beginning. Each baby has only one opportunity to be born; there are no second chances at this.  A gentle birth lasts a lifetime. 

It is my deep desire to help pregnant parents and families feel safe, peaceful, informed, confident and excited. I want babies to arrive in a calm room filled with love and respect.  No routine or unnecessary interventions, no strangers, no time limits, no bright lights, no cutting umbilical cords right away and no taking newly born babies away from their mothers, ever. I coined the term VBAC and was recently selected by Mothering Magazine as their 2011 'Living Treasure" - what an honor. I teach midwifery and have two wonderful student midwives training with me at a time.

I have attended over 1600 births since the beginning of my training. I trained in the United States in Massachusetts and at the Garden of Life Birth Center in Dearborn Michigan and Casa de Nacimiento in El Paso, Texas. I also trained with the International School of Midwifery at Victoria Jubilee Hospital in Kingston, Jamaica.  I love what I do. 

How lucky and blessed your babies are that you are planning a home birth!
