– The American Heritage Dictionary. Houghton Mifflin

"I believe pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding are natural, normal functions of a woman’s mind, body, emotions and spirit, all of which are equally important. As a midwife, I seek to nurture a woman’s sense of personal strength and self confidence so that she may realize birth as an empowering and enlarging experience."
