Honoring Childbirth with Gentleness

"When honored and appreciated as a perfect process, childbirth is the ideal initiation into parenthood."

When a woman is given utmost respect in childbirth, dignity will attend her and she will realize her capability. May each woman be blessed with every comfort and support, and may we hold space for her to assume all freedom and control to follow her inner wisdom and instincts during her rite of passage into parenthood.

Richelle is knowledgeable in the field of nutrition and natural remedies and implements this wisdom in her maternity care. She is experienced in twin pregnancy and birth and in breech delivery.

Philosophy of Care

Twenty years ago my call to midwifery came in a dream where I saw myself being a midwife to my sister. Later, that dream was realized as I welcomed my nephew into the world. As a service of love, I find joy working with women and their families during this beautiful time and season of growth. I believe it is a time of enlightenment and development for the mother, and my focus is to encourage and support her in this journey. Instead of a "doctor-patient" relationship, my clients and I work together as a team. Mother and father are respected as stewards over their pregnancy and their baby, viewed as competent and capable of making the best decisions for their birth.

I believe childbirth should be a gentle, enriching, and strengthening event in a woman's life. When honored and appreciated as a perfect process, childbirth is the ideal initiation into parenthood -- a rite of passage that summons a woman to the deepest level of her heart and soul, from where she is able to make a profound connection and bond with her newborn baby. When accompanied by loving support, the experience of giving birth can deeply influence a woman in a positive way, and she will look back on the experience with fondness and gratitude. I enjoy developing a relationship with each client, and anticipate the opportunity to serve you as a friend, an adviser, and a nurturing support.
