Our mission is to serve as "guardian at the gate." We want to advise and support women throughout the cycles of life, building a sense of community among my clients and their families. Our clinic is open to provide women with a place of refuge, a meeting place, a place to share their pregnancy in comfort and joy.
Routine appointments are available Mon., Tues., Wed. and Fri. 9am to 3pm, and Thurs. 10am to 5pm. As your care providers, we are always available to answer your emergent questions. Otherwise, please feel free to call during business hours or keep a list of questions handy to bring to our next visit. This will help you make an informed decision in choosing your birth attendant. Please feel free to discuss any questions concerning this information.
