I'm Kara –– a Certified Professional Midwife. 

Since 2010, I have served women across all stages 

of the lifespan ––

from pre-conception to post-menopausal.

 

I have worked in hospitals, birth centers, home settings, and a FemTech telehealth startup.  

 

I currently provide highly personalized maternity care for families in the safety of their homes. 

Modern Traditional Midwife

 

Home-based maternity care for families in the

San Francisco Bay Area

I believe in...

 

The inherent power of birthing bodies

Safeguarding the birth experience as a natural, physiologic event

Evidence-based care with the judicious use of technology and medical intervention

Deconstructing the perception of pregnancy as a pathological condition

 

Validating home birth as a safe option for low-risk, healthy people

Empowering individuals and families to make choices in pregnancy, labor, and birth that give their babies the best start possible

Providing support and care that honors the holistic nature of the childbearing year
