About Midwifery Care
The word "midwife" comes from the Latin roots "with" and "women". Throughout all time and in every culture, midwives have served as the nutritionists, herbalists, doctors, ministers, counselors, all rolled into one profession serving women and their families.
Today, Certified Professional Midwives are skilled professionals who offer individualized well mother-baby care, education, and support to expectant mothers in pregnancy, labor, birth and early postpartum.
For Margie, midwifery is more than just a profession - it's a calling.
My first pregnancy was not even close to a positive experience. I was scared out of my mind about what labor and birth would be like. Like many of the women I serve now, I had heard only the scariest things about birth. I was so pleasantly surprised — the birth of my first baby changed everything! It was powerful. Amazing. Bonding. Transformative.
My 2nd birth was even better. This time I hired a doula and took a great childbirth class. The impact of those 2 decisions was so positive, that I decided to become a childbirth educator and doula in 1995 after my 2nd son was born. In 1997, we were surprised with the arrival of our 3rd son who was born at a local birth center. The midwives who helped me birth also helped me realize the power of birth. Our 4th and final son was born in 2002 at home . . . and my love of homeibrth and midwifery care was born.
I LOVE helping women gain the confidence and information they need to experience the transformative journey of birth. I remember how overwhelming (and scary) birth seemed. I can work with you, one-on-one to gain the confidence you need to have a great birth. My goal is to help you have a SAFE, HEALTHY, SATISFYING birth you will CHERISH for a lifetime.
