We have an excellent course designed for EMS staff caring for pregnant women during birth and postpartum period. It is created by a Certified Nurse Midwife with extensive experience in out-of-hospital births and saw the impact of breakdowns in communication and education between midwives and EMS personnel.

To improve safety and patient satisfaction during transport, this 20+hr training course was created! We go over direct clinical application methods to use when transporting emergency and non-emergency situations for pregnant women and their newborns. Topics we go over pregnancy changes, pregnancy complications, normal birth, labor support, complications of birth, physiological birth, newborn care, breastfeeding support, postpartum complications, newborn assessment, and newborn complications during transition. There is so much midwives and EMS can do to support each other and our families choosing an out of hospital birth experience and this training is the next step in bridging that gap.

Becoming a midwife has been a lifelong dream. I didn't realize that this wonderful profession would lead me down the path of business. I have found over the years that midwives need to understand business, accounting, financing, marketing, negotiating, and so much more to be successful in today's healthcare system. I love supporting women. By being able to participate in leadership roles and create amazing private practices, I can support midwives just as much as the pregnant women they care for! I am passionate about women's empowerment and women's business ownership. We can serve families best with independent, successful midwifery practices.

I have over 16 years’ of experience in health care. I have worked in hospitals, birth centers, and home settings. I have worked for large non-profit hospitals, small community hospitals, privately run birth centers, hospital-owned birth centers, my own home birth/birth center practice, and locum assignments. Being able to understand the business and financial side of midwifery has shown me how much easier a midwife's practice can be profitable and successful in today's health care ever-changing climate.

Let me help you start your own practice or improve the current midwifery business you are struggling with. I have years of billing, accounting, contracting, business plan writing, and midwifery clinical expertise to make your midwifery practice thrive no matter what stage it is in! Whether you want a small home birth practice, large birth center practice, or booming hospital midwifery practice, I can provide guidance, support, and resources to make your midwifery practice dreams a reality!
