Planning a home birth? You definitely should consider having Brooke Ray on your team! Brooke belives that how we are born is especially important. Depending on the circumstances, birth can be transformative or demoralizing. A calm and peaceful gestation and birth experience generally lays a foundation for a peaceful temperament.

As a midwife, her goal is to support gentle and sane birth for the benefit of the newborn, the mother, the family and society as a whole. She has attended thousands of births and has a wealth of knowledge on how to help you through the entire process.
