Valley Oak Maternity Care was created to increase maternity care and lactation support options for women and families in South Placer County communities (Roseville, Rocklin, Loomis, Lincoln, Granite Bay).  I feel strongly that personalized prenatal care is something that should be readily available.  Women deserve the choice to select a caregiver who will involve the client in her care and provide support and education at every step. Moms-to-be and their families can look forward to lactation or prenatal appointments, knowing that this time is theirs, rather than deal with short appointments at a busy bustling office.

It brings me joy to provide support for women in the child-bearing year.  As a mother of three, my family is my greatest joy.  I feel honored to be able to serve families in the areas of lactation, maternity care, home birth, and more.  


Valley Oak Maternity Care was started from a vision of filling a gap in our current maternity care system.  As a licensed midwife, I know that gentle, respectful, and informative maternity and lactation care has so many positive effects.  While this great care is often "built-in" when families choose home birth midwifery for their maternity care, there is currently not much choice in types of care providers for moms who choose to birth in hospital. I enjoy providing care to both!

My goal is to provide the best possible personalized and comprehensive maternity and lactation care to each client.
