Greetings A big welcome to Melody Jade born at home in water on March 21, 2012. A big congrats to awesome mama Kristen for her vaginal/home birth after 2 cesareans (VBA2C) or (HBA2C) and to proud papa Mike for all his love and support!
My focus is helping our mothers, families, and community through practicing traditional midwifery. Women have been helping, supporting and teaching women since the beginning of time. Pregnancy and birth are fundamentally healthy processes that are normal, natural parts of a woman's life. My midwifery practice specializes in traditional home birth and water birth services to meet the need for alternative, traditional, and out of hospital maternity services in Miami and South Florida.
Comprehensive, personalized, holistic prenatal care, VBAC, home birth, water birth, labor, birth & postpartum support, continued care after birth for mom & baby, breastfeeding & parenting support, well woman care & family planning, affordable - Medicaid & insurance accepted.
Celebrate Life...Have your baby with a midwife!
After having two of my children with a midwife, in 1983, I became a childbirth educator and a birth assistant. I practiced as a Traditional Midwife in an independent homebirth practice in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia from 1991 to 1996. In 1996, I attained my Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) credentials and continued to do homebirths. In 1999, I relocated to Florida and in 2001 completed the Midwifery program at Miami Dade College and received an Associate of Science degree in Midwifery and a license to practice midwifery. In June 2001, I established Spirit of Life Traditional Midwifery, an independent homebirth practice. I am honored to be a part of the wonderful tradition of midwifery supporting, caring for and being "with woman". Pregnancy and giving birth are some of the most magical and powerful times in a woman's life.
