When I saw my nephew’s beautiful home waterbirth, I was instantly captivated by the world of birth! At the time, I was a special education teacher with no kids of my own and adored my job. I tucked away any ideas of birthwork and carried on. Since having had my daughter with the Midwives of New Jersey 6 years ago, I have not wanted to leave! My love for birthwork has grown, and I have been provided with the amazing opportunity to combine my love of teaching and birth as a childbirth educator for the Midwives of New Jersey, as well as being blessed with the chance to support women in labor as a Midwife Assistant and Doula.
