I’ve known I wanted to be a Midwife since 1975 when I was pregnant with my first baby at age 15. I moved to The Farm in Tennessee after the baby was born to start training to be a midwife. Little did I know it wouldn’t be that easy. I did get to take pictures for Spiritual Midwifery and other books, but didn’t get to start training until I lived in California at age 17. I was then living with a previous Farm Midwife and went to my first birth to assist while I was in early labor myself with a breech! Later the next day, I ended up with a C-section for failure to progress. I then moved to Texas and trained with many different midwives and had my third boy VBAC at age 21 almost in the hospital parking lot. Soon after, I became a Christian and have been serving God ever since.
After taking the EMT class and the Association of Texas Midwives course, I started practicing in Texas. Eventually, I relocated to South Carolina where midwifery is legal and there was only one other midwife in the state at that time. I have been licensed here and training midwifery students since 1985 and created this course with their help all the while continuing my own midwifery practice, New Life Home Birth.
I am married to husband Chris, and am a mother to 3 boys and 1 girl. My daughter was born on my birthday weighing 10lbs 14oz and was my first homebirth. Time has passed and I am adjusting to the word Grandma and loving the role. I was so privileged to catch two of my own granddaughters born at home! My hobbies are Bible study home group, sewing, mosaic tile work, gardening, raw and other healthy foods, camping and mission trips among many other interests. We are building a retreat/teaching center here where we live on the Saluda River with a waterfall in the back yard and have lots to impart. Consider joining us with your family or group.
