Why I Work at Neighborcare:
I began attending births in the late 1970s as a birth assistant in a rural Oregon clinic. Motivated by my love for the work and my deep commitment to women and their health care, I began a nine-year journey that led to my becoming a midwife. Being a midwife gives me a chance to blend science and art into a role that serves women and their families. I enjoy the diversity of cultural backgrounds and birth traditions among my clients. I appreciate the opportunity to develop an ongoing supportive relationship with a woman and her family over the course of pregnancy.
