Since 1997, I have had the honor and privilege to attend many women as they became mothers- whether for the first time or the tenth! I have assisted during labor and birth as a doula, assisted mothers as they initiated breast feeding, taught childbirth education classes, and attended families during the post partum period. I am trained and keep current certifications in Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP), CPR and BEST (Birth Emergency Skills for out of hospital midwives). I began midwifery school and attending prenatal visits as a student with Damaris Pittman (she was my midwife too!) in 2009 and began attending home births and birth center births with her in 2010. While apprenticing, I also worked in the office at a local birth center as the office assistant then billing coordinator from 2011-2014. I completed the Midwife-To-Be midwifery program in May 2014, then obtained the North American Registry of Midwives designation of Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and subsequently became licensed as a midwife in South Carolina (LM). By the time I had completed my midwifery education, I had attended over 150 out of hospital births.
