Meet the Midwife
As a woman of Puerto Rican descent who has lived throughout the Northeast and Southern
regions, and traveled to 23 states and counting plus the Bahamas and Puerto Rico, I feel
grateful to have known people from all over the country and the world. These varied
experiences nurtured and transformed my worldview and shaped the woman I am today. I see
myself not only as a US citizen by birth but as a global citizen by responsibility.
I consider myself a soul adventurer. There is no more profound challenge than the mastery of
self. The pursuit of the limitless requires personal growth, cultivating self-care, self-awareness,
and self-love. I continue to benefit from participating in therapy and healing community in
several forms. Non-Violent Communication has been a treasured tool and an ongoing process
in practice. Receiving the Munay-ki* rites of transformation and being a Mesa carrier has
provided humility, depth, and space for healing myself and others.
Most of all, I am the proud mother of a sweet girl who has taught me more about what my body
and my heart are capable of than anyone I have ever known. Pregnancy, labor, and
motherhood have brought no shortage of lessons in accepting all expected and unexpected
challenges. What these experiences taught me is that I am an informed woman who knows her
body, and I have all the information I need to make the right decision for me and my child. This
affirming gift is my wish for every family I serve.
