“Pregnancy, birth, and motherhood inspire and humble me every day. I am so blessed to get to do what I do. I am a single mom to two awesome kiddos. When I’m not catching babies or napping after delivering babies, you’ll find me snuggling with my dogs and cats, trying to keep up with my kiddos, or unwinding with dance.”
