Welcome!

Constance started her career in healthcare at 16 years old working as a nursing assistant in pediatrics and ob/gyn. Her first assisted birth was at the age of 17; the client was having an emergent c-section and the doctor believed she was a great candidate to offer support.

A decade later, after having her own children, she was inspired by the work of Marie Mongan, creator of Hypnobirthing, which changed her life. She met, and was fortunate enough to be able to spend some time with, the program creator. She also found inspiration by her own midwives, to move onto supporting families in pregnancy and birth.

She became a certified Hypnobirthing Educator. Learning more history and current events further inspired her education into birth and supporting the foundation of families through safe, empowered, and educated birth choices for which she went on to become a professional doula through DONA.

She was motivated by holistic wellbeing knowledge and education, completed yoga teacher training (20 hour RYT) and achieved a prenatal specialization in yoga RPYT. She then became more involved in Fertility Care (CrMS) education and received formal training as a Fertility Care Practitioner.

Realizing there was much work to be done in professional circles of obstetrical and gynecological care, she finally applied and was accepted to midwifery college program after the encouragement of the midwives who had supported her births. In November 2017, she graduated from the Midwives College of Utah, magna cum laude, as a CPM with a Bachelor of Science in Midwifery (BSM).

She traveled extensively for school, working in a variety of situations and garnering a unique skillset and perspective not only for birth but for midwifery care in general. She has had the opportunity to learn from many professionals including, DEM, LM, CPM, DO, MD, ARNP, CNM, RN, and DC. Her specific experiences have created an open mindset, perfect for meeting a wide spectrum of needs for clients.

With years of experience working in the birth field in hospitals, clinics, birth centers, and at home births, she is well equipped to bring midwifery care to families in Central Orlando.

Now it’s your turn; I would love to hear more about you! Tell me your story, how you found midwifery, and what your needs are for your family.
