Not long after I became a hospital labor & delivery nurse, I realized that the view of women’s pregnancy had been transformed from something normal, natural, beautiful, spiritual and transformational to something abnormal, harmful, scary, an illness that needed medical intervention hence the body needed to be forced into labor, the baby had to come out. Not all, but a great majority of women were being induced for unwarranted reasons. Oftentimes they were anxious and feared for the lives of their babies. I saw a lot of issues coming up due to our medicalized interventions. We meddled so much, interrupting normal physiology adding one intervention after another. Oftentimes, these interventions led to the same outcome, the announcement hours or sometimes days later, to an exhausted, nutrition depleted mother, that it was time to extract the baby by cesarean section. And after the major abdominal surgery, most of the time those babies came out perfectly healthy. I listened to moms and learned that oftentimes they had wanted traditional spontaneous labor but were coerced through risk talk into getting induced. I began advocating for what they wanted and my suggestions made plenty of enemies but also empowered women into educating themselves on their pregnancy and their other options.
That’s what I am here to do for you. I am going to go through this journey with you, I am going to watch out for your health and that of your baby and depending on your individual situation, we are going to explore options and together and work towards achieving the best outcome for you, for your baby and for your family.

I am Texas Board of Nursing licensed Advanced Practice Registered Nurse and Certified through the American Midwifery Certification Board as a Certified Nurse Midwife.
