I was so incredibly lucky to be under Mary's care for both of my children. She is kind, calming, extremely knowledgeable, experienced and wise. I was very nervous during pregnancy and Mary always helped me get through it. She always answered all my MANY questions with kindness and patience. I have learned so much from her. She has taught me all that I know about natural remedies, breastfeeding, and so much more. You get the best most thoughtful care with Mary as your midwife. Anyone who I've encountered who has had Mary as their midwife feels exactly the same way. We look at each other and smile knowing we had the best midwife around. I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you, Mary, for all that you do for our families.
Every time I hear a crazy birth story filled with chaos, fear and unnecessary interventions, I take a deep breath of gratitude for Mary. Throughout my pregnancies, she listened to each of my concerns and expertly answered every question. I challenge anyone to find a healthcare professional with more patience than Mary. My family was fortunate enough to enjoy three beautiful water births with A Loving Start. With each birth, I labored peacefully and was able to fully harness my own strength in the calm and comfort of my home, thanks to Mary. I believed in myself as a result of her unfailing confidence in my body. At her core is the innate knowledge in a woman’s ability to birth naturally. She is a true blessing to anyone lucky enough to be in her care. I love you, Mary!!!

About me

I have been a licensed midwife since May 2000 when
I graduated from the International School of Midwifery. Prior to midwifery, I received a bachelor’s degree and worked as a Therapeutic Recreation Specialist in traumatic brain injury.

I am married with three adult children; Lila, Ariana, and Eli. My daughters were born vaginally in the hospital and Eli was born at home. Lila taught me to compromise and surrender into motherhood with her 21 hour labor and Ariana taught me to always expect surprise when she was born 22 minutes after I got to the hospital following a 3 hour 20 minute labor. Eli was born at home after a 2 hour and 50 minute labor. His birth is actually the reason I became a midwife. It was so wonderful to hold him and never have him taken from me.

I strive to live a conscious, healthy lifestyle, practicing veganism since 1986 and embracing natural modalities such as homeopathics, essential oils, and herbs for just as many years. I believe my ongoing desire for knowledge and growth keeps me young, connected, and aware of the constantly changing world around me and the uniqueness of every pregnancy.
