Resources for Homebirth

Pacific Community Midwives

I’m pleased to be part of this collaboration with two other exceptional licensed midwives in our community. While all three of us have our own private clients, we have created a formal backup system that will serve our clients well. Click the link to read more about our group. Chances are you’ll meet one of the other midwives during your pregnancy and it’s quite possible one will be the second midwife at your birth.


Frustrated by the lack of accurate information about childbirth in our community, two fellow midwives and I created Birth Santa Cruz. Check it out!  We have fabulous handouts:  “10 Ways to Pay for Your Homebirth” and “What’s a New Mom–or Dad–to Do?”  available there.

Birth Network is Santa Cruz County’s one-stop resource for “mother friendly” birth practitioners of all stripes. Find a massage therapist, prenatal yoga class, compostable diapers, doulas, midwives, or independent childbirth education class here!
This is an exceptional organization for and by midwifery supporters. Please consider becoming a member.

2014 movie about the microbiome surrounding pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding. They have a lot of ongoing research and continuing education for people interested.

Just for fun! I think every pregnant woman and new family should consider professional photographs to commemorate this amazing event. Tatiana at Little Darling does exceptional work! Check her site out!
