I sincerely believe that an individual’s healthcare should be a partnership between them and their healthcare provider. I recognize the power and strength of each individual and the importance of their involvement in their health and well-being. I believe in both the art and science of midwifery care. I am committed to providing holistic care by integrating the physical, emotional, spiritual and cultural needs of each individual. In my care each person will be treated with respect, dignity, and equality. I aspire to empower and educate each client and their families in order that they may make informed health care decisions. I vow to be “with woman” throughout their healthcare experience providing quality time, acknowledging their life experiences, and through the development of long-standing partnerships with each woman/individual. Excellent women’s health and family-centered care is my top priority.
