“I do not care what kind of birth you have ... a home birth, scheduled cesarean, epidural hospital birth, or if you birth alone in the woods next to a baby deer. I care that you had options, that you were supported in your choices, and that you were respected.”

- January Harshe

"We had an awesome experience with Gabrielle. She was very calm and grounded with me, she coached me and was able to communicate with me. She was also amazing with my husband. Gabrielle was attentive, insightful, informative, and enthusiastic.  She knew what she was talking about and she didn't push any agendas. "

— Lexi F. 

 

Meet the Midwife

Hi, I'm Gabrielle 

I am a traditional midwife, mother, and childbirth educator. 

I believe that birth is a transformational rite of passage that deserves to be respected and supported every step of the way. I respect the inherent power of all birthing people. Evidence-based care and informed decision making are the pillars of my offering.

I am an advocate and a truth-teller.

I am wholeheartedly committed to supporting families in having a safe and empowered birth. My mission is to support women in connecting with their bodies and reclaim their POWER as birthing people. 

I have been supporting birthing families for the last 10 years. I became a traditional midwife after three years of academic study with the National College of Midwifery alongside clinical apprenticeship.  I worked at several high-volume birth centers and home birth practices throughout the states of Oregon and California. Over the last 10 years, I have found myself awed by the resiliency, grace, and wisdom of birthing families. 

 

​​My philosophy is simple - I do not have my own agenda for your birth or postpartum. My only goal is for you to feel fully informed and empowered on your birth journey.

 

I am dedicated to serving all women, birthing people, queer, trans, and non-gender conforming individuals.

Ready to work together?
