Elizabeth is a licensed midwife and naturopathic doctor as well as mother to two little ones, both born at home with midwives. Elizabeth received her training in both naturopathic medicine and midwifery at Bastyr University in Seattle, WA. She practices as both a naturopathic doctor, specializing in women’s health and pediatrics, and also as a midwife. Elizabeth has attended births for over 8 years now, primarily in freestanding birth centers and at home. She is proud to carry on the lineage of naturopathic midwifery which combines the principles of naturopathic medicine with the Midwifery Model of Care.
Elizabeth believes that pregnancy and birth are normal, yet sacred, physiological processes. She believes strongly in the safety of home birth for low risk women and babies. Through her own birth experiences, she understands first-hand that birth can and should be joyful and empowering. She believes strongly in choices and informed consent and brings these principles to all the families she works with.
When not serving families and running after her own little ones, Elizabeth enjoys trail running, swimming in the ocean, relaxing in the desert, working on her garden, and, unashamedly, true crime podcasts.
