Gifts From Above Midwifery - Bringing compassionate midwifery care to mother & baby!!

    Welcome to my website!  I hope you can get a cup of coffee or tea & come chat at my kitchen table!!  I just love to sit down & hear ladies tell their birth stories!  Every birth is unique...sometimes very short, or very long, sometimes she has a home birth, hospital birth, etc. & there are so many feelings & emotions involved.  Every baby born has an impact on the mother's life.  It is so rewarding to be a part of the birthing process!!  I want you to feel free to express your specific desires for your delivery.  I enjoy serving & reaching out to clients with care & compassion.  I strive to lend a peaceful presence to your birth & also a pep talk now & then if someone is worn out.  Sometimes a change of scenery is in order if you've been in one room waiting around too long. 
     The first calling in my life is as a wife & mother.  My husband has been so supportive of my endeavor to become a licensed midwife.  Though the way was long & arduous, perseverance & trust in the Lord got me through.  My wonderful family is my husband Abe, son Morgan (13 yrs.), daughter Alexandra (8 yrs.) & son Casey (6 yrs.).  I had a midwife with my first baby, but transported & delivered at the hospital.  My second & third baby were delivered at the birth center in Libby (Lavender & Roses) with midwives Sherry Bushnell & Joyce Vogel.
     Many a mom faces the questions regarding all the options available today, but doesn't know why she should or should not do certain procedures.  That is why I am committed to providing excellent prenatal care that also includes education.  There is a concept of personal responsibility & an individual's right to make choices regarding what they feel is best for themselves & their baby (within the boundaries of responsible care).  This is where there needs to be true informed choice, not just informed consent to what I (or any other care provider) feel is best.  Every mama needs to have the freedom to have her baby with a caregiver of her choice, one who is appropriate to her physical needs & her unique personality & beliefs.
     There is great value in continuity of care throughout the childbearing cycle.  Thus, if there are complications in a pregnancy that require medical consultation, I will strive to maintain continuous care within realistic limits.  My vision for our community is that there would be on-going trust & respect between the hospital/physicians & the midwives, bringing collaborative care to the clients in my care.  In the future I would like to bring quality care to a diversity of individuals, serving others with Jesus' love & compassion.  
     Honesty is invaluable in any relationship.  Especially between a midwife & client.  Openness & clarity in communication are the keys to a good relationship & friendship throughout the pregnancy & beyond.

Psalms 139:13-17
     For You did form my inward parts; You did knit me together in my mother's womb.  I will praise You; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are Your works; and that my soul knows right well.  My frame was not hidden from You when I was being formed in secret and intricately and curiously wrought in the depths of the earth.  Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your Book all the days of my life were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them.  How precious and weighty also are Your thoughts to me, O God!  How vast is the sum of them!
