More and more, science is proving what traditional midwives have long known and understood. There IS a blueprint for optimal labor and birth, and you may already intuitively know what it entails (or you will after taking one of my classes!). You want to feel private, safe and respected. You want your baby to be welcomed gently and with love and you want to hold your baby skin to skin as you get to know each other in the early minutes and hours after birth. You want to be treated with reverence, and want your birth space to be held as sacred. You want loving support and an experienced guide. These are you and your baby's birth rights. I would be honored if you chose me to walk with you on this path.
- Margo (Duluth Midwife)
Margo has been and continues to be a ray of sunshine in a birth world filled with doubt and fear. I enjoyed our prenatal chats and always felt supported and left knowing that she believed in my ability to bring my child into the world surrounded by peace and love. Margo served our family in humility and grace. My husband was especially thankful for her presence and servant’s heart. We love you, Margo!

During the birth, Margo was incredibly patient even when I was feeling stuck. She never tried to “fix” it for me - she reassured me that I could do it without trying to tell me how, and my experience was so empowering as a result. In labor, I gained confidence from being with another woman who gets it, and Margo GETS IT. After my baby was born, she was insistent (in a good way) about having great nutrition, plenty of rest, and honoring the sacred postpartum time. Margo is exceptional at finding information, being inquisitive and always wanting to get her clients the best information possible. You won’t regret hiring her to be your midwife.
I would love to hear from you! I want to be a "community midwife" in the truest sense of the word, so even if you aren't my client, and don't intend to be, I am here to support you wherever you are at on your fertility, pregnancy, birth or postpartum journey. I am happy to do one time consults to get a second opinion, give support to women experiencing miscarriage and loss, or do private birth preparation for families planning any type of birth. In other words, I am flexible and hope to be a resource for you, so please let me know how I can be of service.
