Contact Me Today to Book An Initial Interview
The initial interview is an opportunity for an open discussion about birth philosophies, background & experience, and to ask & answer questions. It allows us both to discover whether we will be a good fit for your prenatal, labor & birth support goals.
This visit can be in-person at the location of your choosing or virtual. I block out a minimum of an hour for the consultation but have had interviews go much longer or end sooner. I believe that part of getting to know one another is allowing the discussion to unfold naturally and for however long that may take.
