About Me

I am a home birth midwife for the Kansas City area and the Northwest Missouri region. My husband, chiropractor Greg Gates, and I have six beautiful children.  I have attended over 550 births, giving me experience as well as a genuine love for the families I connect with.  I make my clients’ goals my own goals.

I educate families about the process every step of the way and am respectful of their choices.  I can help you with nutrition, lactation, well-woman care, supplements, water birth, family planning and all aspects of the child-bearing year and beyond.

I began attending births as a student in 2004. I began practicing as a midwife in 2006 and became certified by NARM in 2007.
