"Kelsey is an awesome lady. For my birth she was as hands on or hands off as I needed her to be at that particular moment. Great combination of professionalism and friendliness, I'm so glad Kelsey was my midwife!"
Birth has captured me. I feel at home next to a woman in labor; the most bewildering sense of awe, respect, and victory next to a mom holding her new baby. I believe that God has designed me for this work; to be an intuitive, compassionate, strong, and truth-bearing servant to the women of our world. I believe that every woman should be treated with dignity, respect, and trust during their childbearing year; that they should be thoroughly celebrated, and that they should have access to the highest quality of maternity care. I have committed myself to be trained, skilled, humble, and ever learning so that I can give women the same care that I want to receive. Excellent midwifery care nurtures the body, mind, spirit, and soul; and promotes growth in both the mother and the midwife. Excellent midwifery care changes the nations one woman at a time. If you wish to nurture a nation, nurture it's women.
In 2016 I had the opportunity to work as a midwife with refugees from the Syrian and Afghan conflicts. This has deeply impacted and inspired me. I have dreams to reach the women of the world through midwifery care, from the U.S. to the Middle East and back. There is a never-ending need for midwives, and I hope to be a part of training up women from countries in need who have hearts to serve and will go back home to work in their communities. This is how we can save lives, and love well: through the compassionate and skilled hands of wise women serving women. I am certain that the future holds more of this work for me; but for now I'm delighted to use my skills and passion in Central Oregon, loving my family and yours!
Doula, Birth Assistant
I have been interested in pregnancy and birth since I can remember, always learning with my friends and family as they welcomed their children into the world. It was after the birth of my daughter in 2012 that I decided to pursue birth work. In reality I believe birth work picked me. I believe in women's innate, God given ability to birth and my passion is to support women in this ability. I am humbled by the families who choose to have me on their team in the most vulnerable and empowering time of their lives.
