Hi! I'm Angela.

I'm a midwife based in Santa Cruz, CA. I also provide post-partum doula services and placenta encapsulation.

I care deeply about the well being of birthgivers, and the families and communities they are a part of creating. I believe the experiences families have as they are birthing their babies are hugely formative for everyone involved and deserve to be held and supported with great care and love.

Please explore my website to learn more about me, my background, and the services I offer. All of the photos on this website are from births I have attended. Thanks to the families for sharing them, and to Sabine Omvik and Santa Cruz Birth Photographer.

If you'd like to talk about how I can support you in your birthing process, I'm available by email or phone:
