I became a midwife because: I am a firm believer in creating a positive birth space WHEREVER you chose to birth your baby.
I work hard to make sure everyone involved in your birth is a positive force behind you the entire way. I believe that every family deserves someone who is helpful and knowledgeable about the beauty of birth.
Before I was a midwife: I was a mother and teacher for cloth diaper and baby wearing classes.
Hobbies: My favorite things in the world are the beach (hence the mermaid name), my kids, babies and helping women during labor. In my spare time I enjoy painting, writing, drawing and reading.
"Our Midwife Cora was the perfect fit for us! We felt very comfortable with her, she’s very personable, yet professional at the same time. She took her time with us at each visit we had, answered all of our questions, being first time parents there were a lot (even if they were silly ones). It was nice knowing she had given birth naturally to two children, made me feel like I could do it, no problem!
I also give Cora and Our Team props for working with Us & Our Tiny Home (RV), given very little space to get done what was needed from them. If your thinking of a home birth don’t be scared, be fearless! A Good Team Really makes a difference and I was able to let my fears subside.
I am so thankful to have found Cora (friends for life) within the group of Midwives at WRM. She worked with our budget and I was able to have my prefect home water birth! I can’t thank her enough for allowing us to work with her. If your looking for a Sweet, Knowledgeable & Caring Midwife, look no further, Cora’s Your Gal!" #RVBABY
