Midwives are the backbone of what we do. From our skilled Haitian Midwives on the ground, to those who travel from all over the world to learn, serve, support, and offer relief; we are so appreciative of you! We are thrilled to now be partnering with Midwives who are dedicated to supporting the work MamaBaby Haiti does. By being a Sister Midwife, you will be directly helping ensure that our midwives have the help they specifically need.

I am a wife, a mother to 7, and a grammy to 14 so far. I am also a midwife who absolutely, beyond a shadow of a doubt, loves serving young mama's. The LORD has been so good to me and I want to honor Him in all that I do and say. I fell in love with MamaBaby Haiti back in 2013. I spent 6 weeks there serving the women of Haiti. I am so proud of the work they are doing there and will be returning this coming December to serve again. We all can make a difference, one MamaBaby at a time.

I trained in Scotland and became a direct-entry midwife in 1998. Since then, I have had four daughters and enjoy a small home birth practice in a tiny town in New Hampshire. I was at MamaBaby in 2012 and 2013. I love Haiti, and fall deeper in love each time I come back. The next time I come, hopefully very soon, it will be to bring home my fifth daughter! After that, I definitely plan a return to MamaBaby to serve. I aim to bear these fruit in my profession: Love (for the women and families I serve), Peace (in all circumstances), Joy ( in celebrating new life), Patience and Self-control (during times of fatigue), Kindness, Goodness, and Gentleness (always) and Faithfulness (for strength and blessing).

I'm a CPM, I spent a couple of weeks in Haiti and would love to go again. I'm working with a contact in the DR to develop a doula program nationwide with the hope that it will blossom into reintroducing midwifery. I work in Northwest Indiana. I am completing my Bachelor's in Midwifery through Midwifery College of Utah and hope to teach in the future.

I am honored to be a sister midwife for MamaBabyHaiti. As a mama and midwife I wish I could do more. I wish for all mamas and babies to have gentle, safe, empowering births nourished with health and love. I have a home birth practice in Chelsea, Michigan called Gentle Birth Holistic Midwifery.
