Welcome! Childbirth is a blessed event that deserves the very best of care. As you prepare to welcome your new baby into the world, it is important to make good decisions about how your baby is born.

You will find the Gently Borne website full of helpful information about pregnancy, childbirth, home birth, midwives, unassisted birth, and a variety of birthing options (there is also information about homeschooling and simple living on the "links" page). Thoughtful planning will be the best way to help assure that you have the most wonderful birth experience possible. I provide individualized midwifery care for homebirth families throughout Alcona, Alpena, Oscoda and Iosco counties.

Enjoy your visit to the Gently Borne web site and discover more the joys of giving birth at home. A free 1-hour consultation is available. If you are interested in discussing your birth options, I look forward to talking to you!
