A Modern Midwife

Hey, I’m Heather (also known to some as A Modern Midwife). I like to provide useful information to women about pregnancy and women’s health (you know…the kind of stuff you forget to ask at your annual exam).

Our bodies are pretty amazing (and a little confusing…), and what works for you, may not work for the girl next door. I enjoy educating women how to take charge of their body and their health through alternative therapies AND traditional medicine.

I’m a wife to one, and a mom to two teens. I love a good plant-based recipe, and I exercise to eat. Days I’m not catching babies are best spent sipping good coffee in the morning, and wearing yoga pants and a messy bun. My happy place is the beach, and still get excited every time I get to use my suitcase.
