About Carole:

My journey becoming a midwife began over 30 years ago when I was pregnant with my third daughter. There were many twists and turns along my path. I have been a registered nurse working in the maternal/child arena for 23 years. I have loved every minute that I have spent serving women and their families; to me there is no greater joy. Some of the most thrilling times were catching three of my grandchildren at home, what an honor that was. I have been married for 37 years; I have three grown daughters and 6 grandchildren. In addition to being a homebirth midwife, I mentor midwifery students and teach Ramapo college nursing students. As a midwife, I have worked in a free standing birthing center in Southern Texas bordering Mexico, a practice with a physician, a midwifery practice, and homebirth. I have also been to Sierra Leone, Africa working with faculty and students from Ramapo College.

I have the capacity to provide comprehensive care to women throughout their lifespan.  I am qualified to offer care preconception, during pregnancy, labor and birth, postpartum, and beyond. I offer newborn care in the early postpartum period. Quality care is provided by forming a trusting relationship with clients.
