My call to midwifery

Working with women in birth has been a passion of mine since childhood.  Although I started out with a Music History and Literature degree, the journey to midwifery began with doula training in 2001 in Vancouver, BC Canada.  There I did birth, postpartum and breastfeeding counselor work in the city.  In 2003 I married my love Chad Bjorgan and when pregnant with our second child felt called to the mission field.  Davao City, Philippines is where I did my clinical for the National College of Midwifery, while my husband did music ministry and water filtration projects with Impact Nations.

Upon graduation in 2009 our family returned to Canada, where I obtained my Lamaze Certification and taught prenatal classes through the local college.  In 2011 we moved to WA State where I began practicing midwifery as a licensed midwife.  Our family now consists of 6 beautiful children, most of whom were born at home.  2016 we made the big move to Redding, CA where I partnered with Becka Frankie, LM.  It has been a wonderful move for us and I am honoured to work with families in this region!
